At Broncos practice today tackle Donald Stephenson (calf) and tight end (calf) Virgil Green were not on the field. Gary Kubiak said earlier this week both players are "day to day" and that Green was "a little ahead" toward a return.

First-year QBs playing like veterans

The six quarterbacks who've made their starting debuts this season have gone a combined 11-2 so far. One loss (Cody Kessler vs. the Dolphins) came in overtime, while the other (Dak Prescott vs. the Giants) came by one point.

ESPN Stats and Information  

The Broncos face Jameis Winston on Sunday and Trevor Siemian will try to become the third quarterback in the common draft era (since 1966) to win three of his first four starts in a season against former No. 1 overall pick quarterbacks. Drew Bledsoe (1999) and John Skelton (2011) were the first two who accomplished that feat.
