It had pretty much been guessed throughout the entirety of the week, but now today we have received official confirmation as to which Denver Broncos quarterback will be under center when they play against the San Diego Chargers this Thursday night.
Trevor Siemian missed the Broncos' week five game against the Atlanta Falcons due to a shoulder injury, so Paxton Lynch replaced him as the starter and they ended up losing their first game of the season.
While that has no reflection on the 2016 draftee because it's only one game, the current Super Bowl champions are still reverting back to who they had under center at the start of the season for their week six game, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

The ESPN reporter tweeted: "No big surprise, but Broncos' QB Trevor Siemian will start tonight vs Chargers after missing Sunday's game vs Falcons with shoulder injury."
The reason why Siemian didn't play in week five was because he hurt his non-throwing shoulder in the week four win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. After Lynch threw for 223 yards, a touchdown and an interception in a 23-16 loss to the Falcons, Broncos fans won't mind having Siemian back.
However, they will be missing a key part of their offense this week, as head coach Gary Kubiak will not be coaching due to suffering a complex migraine condition on Sunday night shortly after Denver's loss.
The Broncos have won 15 consecutive division road games, the longest such streak in NFL history, so they'll be hoping that continues with Siemian under center this Thursday night, who has thrown for 824 yards, six touchdowns, and three interceptions with a completion rate of 67.3 after four games this season.
