Denver Broncos quarterback Paxton Lynch was injured on Sunday against the Oakland Raiders. He left the contest with an ankle injury.

He was replaced by Trevor Siemian, who began the season as a starter. Lynch is the second player from this game, who left with an injury, as Raiders wide receiver Amari Cooper left with a neck injury.

He was injured on a rollout pass, as he attempted to hit Emmanuel Sanders in the third quarter. Lynch had to be helped off the field.

Siemian was benched in favor of Brock Osweiler. This week, Head Coach Vance Joseph, with the guidance of EVP and GM John Elway, decided to give Lynch a look and bench Osweiler, the former Broncos, and Houston Texans starter.

Lynch was expected to be the starter for the rest of the season, as they get a look at him to see if he could be a franchise signal-caller.

This was Lynch’s second career start. He struggled in the contest in his first start since Week 12 in 2016.

Lynch had 41 passing yards before he left the game. He went 9 of 14 and was sacked four times, along with a red zone interception.

He left with the 3-7 Broncos down 21-0. In the six drives, he led the team on four “three and outs,” and had -9 total yards.
