It has been quite the year for rookie quarterbacks in the NFL, now Paxton Lynch will have his chance.
The Denver Broncos have announced that the Broncos' rookie quarterback will start Sunday against the Falcons, according to Mike Klis of KUSA. uarterback Trevor Siemian was set to start, but he continues to have pain in his non-throwing shoulder.
Siemian took a heavy sack and was forced to leave last Sunday's game against the Tamps Bay Buccaneers. Lynch was efficient in relief of Siemian, completing 14 of 24 passes for 170 yards.
The Broncos are hoping that this start will give some experience to the 32nd overall pick, while Siemian rests his shoulder for San Diego next Thursday.
