Sanchez (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 11 tilt versus the Ravens, David Helman of the team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran signal caller will thus be out of uniform for the first time this season as a result of the long-awaited return of Tony Romo (back), who will serve as Dak Prescott's backup against the Ravens going forward.

Sanchez took over from Dak Prescott late in Sunday's 35-10 blowout of the Browns, completing his only pass attempt for eight yards and running the ball twice for minus-2 yards.

EDGE Analysis

It was Sanchez's first regular season action as a Cowboy, but it could well be his last with Tony Romo (back) getting close to returning to the lineup. With Prescott playing so well, the team isn't likely to carry three QBs on their 53-man roster, so Romo's return could well signal Sanchez's release.

The Cowboys will sign the recently-released Sanchez, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

After a stellar preseason, Dak Prescott proved to head coach Jason Garrett and the rest of the Cowboys' decision makers that he's capable of running the offense in Tony Romo's (back) stead. However, with only second-year pro Jameill Showers available for quarterback duty, Sanchez will be brought in to provide a veteran presence in the QB room.

The Broncos released Sanchez on Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sanchez's fate was seemingly sealed when he was held out of the final two preseason games, but Denver's brass has made it official. Head coach Gary Kubiak will thus hand the reins of the offense to Trevor Siemian when the Broncos open the post-Peyton Manning era on Thursday against the Panthers. Meanwhile, Sanchez could land on a quarterback-needy team like the Cowboys in the near future.

Sanchez won't suit up for Thursday's preseason game at Arizona, Nicki Jhabvala of the Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sanchez's second DNP in a row could be the final nail in the coffin for life as a Bronco. With Trevor Siemian slated to be under center in Week 1, Sanchez is seemingly on pace to enter the free market in the near future, barring a trade to a quarterback-needy organization.

Sanchez has been informed that Trevor Siemian will be the Broncos' starting quarterback, the team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Once considered the favorite to start, Sanchez lost ground to Trevor Siemian during training camp and the preseason. Although Siemian wasn't particularly impressive in the exhibition games, Sanchez sealed his fate by turning the ball over three times in two appearances. He didn't even play in Saturday's preseason game against the Rams, leaving his roster spot in question as cut-downs approach. The Broncos seemingly believe Paxton Lynch is ready for the No. 2 quarterback job.

Sanchez did not play in Saturday's preseason game as Trevor Siemian appears to have secured the starting quarterback job, Denver ABC 7 reports.

EDGE Analysis

After a poor preseason, it looks all but certain that Sanchez will be cut and not make the final roster. Denver will save $3.5 million in salary cap space and not lose a 7th-round draft pick if they cut Sanchez.

Sanchez will be the third quarterback to enter Saturday's preseason game against the Rams, NFL Network's James Palmer reports.

EDGE Analysis

This is yet another sign that Sanchez has fallen behind Trevor Siemian in the battle for Denver's starting quarterback job. While not necessarily out of the picture, Sanchez may not even make the final roster if the Broncos decide that Siemian is the starter and Paxton Lynch is ready to serve as the backup.

Sanchez might not make the team if Trevor Siemian earns the starting job and Paxton Lynch proves to be a suitable No. 2, The Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

The rationale makes sense. Siemian and Lynch are almost certain to be on the team - in some order on the depth chart - in 2017 and so if one is capable of starting and one is capable of backing up, it would make sense to move forward with that twosome in 2016, develop the team's young talent at quarterback and save money by cutting Sanchez. The same logic would apply should Lynch come out and earn the starting job with Siemian clearly capable of serving as the back up. Sanchez, who had a hold on the starting job up until a few weeks ago, has moved the ball well in both preseason games, but has also turned the ball over three times - more than Lynch and Siemian combined.

ESPN's Jeff Legwold suggests that Trevor Siemian -- who is slated to start Saturday's preseason game against the Rams -- has a leg up at this time on both Sanchez and Paxton Lynch.

EDGE Analysis

It's unclear whether Sanchez or Lynch will enter Saturday's game after Siemian, though coach Gary Kubiak said Monday that they all are "going to play an equal amount." In any case, where Sanchez was once the favorite to hold things down at QB for Denver until Lynch (drafted 26th overall in April) was ready to take over, it now looks as though Siemian will need to falter this weekend in order to not claim the team's top job at the position.
