Osweiler completed 23 of 42 pass attempts for 254 yards, one touchdown and one interception during Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Bengals.

EDGE Analysis

Osweiler threw for a season high in yardage, but he completed just 55 percent of his passes and finished with an underwhelming six yards per attempt. He connected with Demaryius on a 17-yard touchdown to give his team a chance late in the fourth quarter, but even that wasn't enough to halt their six-game slide. Osweiler appears to have possession of the starting job for the time being, but one would have to wonder at what point the organization will elect to give Paxton Lynch an opportunity. An away game against the Raiders is next on the schedule.

Osweiler (right shoulder) practiced fully Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

ESPN's Jeff Legwold relays that Osweiler threw well at Thursday's practice and is in line to start Sunday's game against the Bengals. While the Broncos' top signal-caller for Week 11 is already known, coach Vance Joseph has yet to decide whether Paxton Lynch or Trevor Siemian will be Osweiler's backup Sunday.

Osweiler was limited at Wednesday's practice by a right shoulder issue, Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Previous reports suggested that the QB was dealing with a minor chest injury, but his limitations Wednesday were related to an issue with his throwing shoulder. Osweiler is, nonetheless, still expected to start Sunday's game against the Bengals.

Osweiler will start Sunday's game against the Bengals, Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

While not exactly impressive, Osweiler at least looked competent in Sunday's 41-16 loss the Patriots, completing 18 of 33 passes for 221 yards with one touchdown and one interception. The Broncos likely will give Paxton Lynch another look before the end of the season, but they aren't ready to go there just yet.

Osweiler completed 18 of 33 passes for 221 yards, one touchdown, and one interception during Sunday's 41-16 loss to the Patriots.

EDGE Analysis

Osweiler held his own for most of the game but wasn't able to make the plays needed to give his team a chance to win -- especially when dueling a future Hall of Famer in Tom Brady. His performance was still an improvement from last week in Philadelphia, though, when Osweiler was markedly less accurate and got picked off twice. Even if he's able to hold onto the starting gig for another week, Osweiler won't be an advisable fantasy option in Week 11 against a Bengals secondary that's allowed the third-fewest passing yards per attempt this season (6.3).

Osweiler will start Sunday's contest against the Patriots, Mike Klis of 9 News Denver reports.

EDGE Analysis

Osweiler was unable to spring the Broncos out of their offensive morass Sunday at Philadelphia, as the team's losing streak extended to four games on a season-low 226 yards of offense. Accounting for 208 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions on 19-for-38 passing, he wasn't done an favors by a ground game that's failed to surpass 70 yards three times during the aforementioned four-game span. He'll look to get into a better groove this weekend against New England's league-worst pass defense (295.5 yards per game).

Osweiler completed 19 of 38 passes for 208 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions in Sunday's 51-23 loss in Philadelphia.

EDGE Analysis

Head coach Vance Joseph said earlier in the week that it was simple. If Osweiler played well, he'd play against against New England. Now, nothing is particularly simple. Osweiler started well, leading Denver down the field for a field goal on the team's opening drive, but then proceeded to make a number of ill-advised throws, including forcing a slant to Demaryius Thomas that led to a very short field for the Eagles. It's possible that, given so few options, Denver sticks with Osweiler against a less potent pass rush in New England, but -- at this point in the season -- Osweiler is essentially keeping the seat warm for whenever Paxton Lynch fully recovers from a preseason shoulder injury. Lynch practices all through this past week so the clock is likely ticking.

Broncos head coach Vance Joseph informed the team Wednesday that Osweiler would start at quarterback Sunday against the Eagles, Mike Klis of 9 News Denver reports.

EDGE Analysis

With incumbent starter Trevor Siemian turning the ball over seven times during the Broncos' three-game losing streak, Joseph decided that it was time for a change under center, with Osweiler getting the call over fellow backup Paxton Lynch, who is still working his way back to full health following a long absence due to a shoulder injury. Given the greater investment the Broncos have in Lynch as a 2016 first-round pick, it's possible that he'll get a look at some point this season, but not until Osweiler proves to be an untenable option. Once highly touted in his own right due to his impressive physical tools and pedigree as a 2012 second-round pick of the Broncos, Osweiler faltered mightily upon signing a massive contract with the Texans in March of 2016. In 15 games last season, Osweiler completed just 59 percent of his passes while tossing 16 interceptions against 15 touchdowns, with Houston subsequently giving up on him as its franchise quarterback. Osweiler, who signed with the Broncos after being cut by the Browns in training camp, is seemingly held in high esteem by the organization that drafted him, but it's still expected that Denver's offense game plan will lean heavily on its ground attack. If Osweiler can avoid the turnovers woes that befell Siemian, he'll have a good shot at holding off Lynch for the starting gig, but don't expect him to be an attractive fantasy commodity outside of formats that start two quarterbacks.

Osweiler will be considered by head coach Vance Joseph in the wake of Trevor Siemian's struggles as the Broncos' starting quarterback, Lindsay Jones of USA Today reports.

EDGE Analysis

Osweiler's journey came full circle in early September after spending the previous 18 months with two organizations. Since rejoining the Broncos, he served as Siemian's backup due to Paxton Lynch's recovery from a sprained right throwing shoulder. Despite Lynch receiving clearance for a full practice by the end of last week, the second-year signal caller isn't in the conversation just yet for the top job. Osweiler was 2-for-4 passing for 18 yards during a seven-snap showing Week 6, but previously he averaged 7.2 yards per attempt and posted a 10:6 TD:INT while keeping the Broncos afloat during their march to Super Bowl 50 in 2015.
