Week 4 injury roundup: Cam Newton enters concussion protocol
Sunday October 2nd, 2016

Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian was carted off the field during Sunday’s game against the Buccaneers with an injury to his non-throwing shoulder. He has been diagnosed with an AC joint sprain, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports.

Siemian was sacked by defensive tackle Clinton McDonald late in the second quarter, and appeared to be in some discomfort afterward. He was replaced under center by rookie Paxton Lynch.

Denver announced shortly after that he was available to re-enter, but likely wouldn’t play the rest of the game.

The 24-year-old had completed five of seven passes for 68 yards and a touchdown before exiting.
