If there’s not a quarterback controversy in Denver, with Paxton Lynch having stepped in for Trevor Siemian in the second half of the Broncos’ Week 4 victory over the Buccaneers, then there’s at least a quarterback conversation. And on Monday, head coach Gary Kubiak added some clarity.

Reports coming out of Sunday’s game were that Siemian could have returned to the game if the Broncos absolutely needed him to, but they didn’t; they had the game well in hand by the time he left the field with an injury to his non-throwing shoulder in the second quarter.

The question, though, with Lynch performing well in Siemian’s stead, was whether Kubiak might choose to roll with his first-round draft pick going forward.

Apparently, if Siemian’s healthy enough to go, not yet.
