Brock Osweiler limited with minor throwing shoulder injury
Brock Osweiler limited with minor throwing shoulder injury :-Paxton Lynch isn’t the only Broncos quarterback recovering from an affliction in his throwing shoulder.
Coach Vance Joseph announced Wednesday that Brock Osweiler was limited in practice due to a right shoulder injury. The injury, considered minor, occurred in the second quarter of last week’s loss to the Patriots, when he rolled out to his left and was shoved to the ground.

Breathe easy, though, Broncos Country; Osweiler remains on track to start in Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
“It’s no big deal,” said Osweiler. “I’m going to be ready to go Sunday.”
Lynch, meanwhile, took second-team practice reps for the first time since suffering a shoulder sprain during the preseason. Now healthy enough to play, per Joseph, he’s likely competing with Trevor Siemian for the right to backup duties.
Osweiler is expected to practice in full when the team convenes Thursday.
“I’ll be out there tomorrow slinging the ball around,” he said.
