Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said Tuesday the coaches have given quarterback Trevor Siemuwn more freedom to make decisions at the line of scrimmage as Siemian progresses. And while Siemian was an efficient 14-of-25 passing for 157 yards and a touchdown in Monday's win over the Houston Texans, Kubiak said Siemian's influence dos show up in the Broncos' 190-yard rushing day. "Trevor did a great job (Monday) night of getting our team into some great runs,'' Kubiak said. "Trevor had a lot to do with us running the ball well," Kubiak said. "We're getting more comfortable with him, letting go up to the line of scrimmage, giving him some either-or type of football plays, you go handle it, so we're growing from that standpoint.''

Jaguars-Titans injury report.

Jeff Legwold ESPN Senior Writer 

One injury to watch for the Broncos this week is linebacker Brandon Marshall. Marshall left Monday night's win with a hamstring injury and coach Gary Kubiak said Marshall was still being evaluated Tuesday and offered "I'd say he's day to day." Corey Nelson played in Marshall's spot for 18 snaps in the game and would be the expected replacement if Marshall is unable to play Sunday against the San Diego Chargers. Marshall is currently second on the team in tackles with 38, just behind safety T.J. Ward's 42.
