Denver Broncos quarterback Paxton Lynch may have lost the starting job to Trevor Siemian this offseason, but the organization still thinks he’s an important part of their future and he took an important step in his recovery from a shoulder injury on Wednesday.
Lynch began throwing for the first time since hurting his right shoulder against the San Francisco 49ers in an Aug. 19 preseason game, according to a report from Mike Klis of 9 News in Denver.
“For Day 1 it felt good,” Lynch said.
When asked about when he’d be ready for game action (presumably as a backup to Siemian, though he’ll have to battle with Brock Osweiler), Lynch said that he wasn’t sure but just knew that the doctor said it was okay to begin throwing and that he’ll see what happens from here.
Lynch made about 15 throws on Wednesday and it looks like he’ll gradually ease his way back into the offense. Meanwhile, rookie quarterback Chad Kelly has also resumed throwing activities.
He was placed on injured reserve earlier in the year, but is already up to 30-35 throws in post-practice sessions. The Broncos drafted Kelly with the last pick in the 2017 NFL Draft and it’s unclear whether or not the franchise would consider activating him given that they’ve already got Osweiler and Lynch is working towards a return.
