Broncos QB Paxton Lynch will play when healthy
Denver Broncos head coach Vance Joseph recently opened up about his quarterback situation, stating that Paxton Lynch will play when deemed healthy.
This isn’t shocking, as he recently admitted he would use the rest of the season as a way to audition Lynch for next year.
“I’ll say this: Our goal is to see him play before the year is out. We’ve got two more games,” Joseph said, via Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com. “My concern is: Is he healthy enough to play at a high level? He’s got an ankle injury. He hasn’t practiced in three weeks. He’s a quarterback who can use his legs when he’s in danger. I want to make sure he’s right. … That’s the issue, that’s why we’re taking our time trying to figure out if he can play.”
This is all coming off the heels of Joseph admitting he’s a bit non-committed to any QB for next season.
“Brock played well, . . . But we have a lot of things going on as far as the QB deal,” coach Vance Joseph said, via Nicki Jhabvala of the Denver Post. “We want to see Paxton play some. That’s the truth. We have to see where he is as a player going into the offseason.”
When asked about Trevor Siemian’s future, Joseph replied:
“I’m not sure. That’s a question we’ll all have to answer after the season, a number of us.”
Obviously, John Elway and company will have some huge decisions to make this offseason about who will play quarterback next year. For Paxton Lynch, it would ideal to get healthy quick enough to force the Broncos to not look elsewhere this offseason for a “fix” at the position.
