Vance Joseph: It's Brock Osweiler's job as long as he "plays well"

Broncos face uncertainty at quarterback following third straight loss

Speaking on condition of anonymity because the team hasn't publicly announced the switch, both people confirmed coach Vance Joseph informed his players of the QB switch at a team meeting Wednesday morning.

It appears that Osweiler will keep the starting role for the foreseeable future regardless of his performance in Week 9 against the Eagles, as Trevor Siemian lost his job after struggling mightily for the past three weeks.

The team finds itself without a clear answer at quarterback following another Trevor Siemian debacle Monday night, when he threw three interceptions in a 29-19 loss to the Chiefs. Osweiler made headlines replacing Peyton Manning in 2015, but, as noted above, 2016 saw him head back to the bench.

Siemian went 8-6 last season when the Broncos missed the playoffs, ending a five-year reign atop the AFC West. Osweiler also went 8-6 last year and 1-1 in the playoffs for the Texans, who traded him in the offseason to Cleveland.

Joseph also clarified Paxton Lynch won't be under consideration because the second-year quarterback is just now coming back from a two-month shoulder injury.

Brock Osweiler will guide Denver's offense Sunday when the Broncos take on the Eagles in Philadelphia. The Broncos signed him to be their backup before the season started. But the Broncos have an abbreviated week either to make adjustments to Siemian's game or to get Osweiler ready to play.

Kelly, aka "Mr. Irrelevant" in the 2017 NFL Draft, practiced for the first time this year for the Broncos.

Plus, Osweiler and Siemian aren't that differently in terms of talent and the way they play the game. He didn't get much help from others; wide receiver Bennie Fowler, who started in place of the injured Emmanuel Sanders, dropped a potential touchdown pass that could have pulled the Broncos within 10 points midway through the third quarter and given them a better platform from which to try and build a rally. Guys are playing hard.
