Siemian earns starting nod in Denver's preseason opener - NFL Training Camp News

DENVER (AP) — Trevor Siemian hasn't won the Denver Broncos' quarterback job just yet, but he has earned the starting nod over Paxton Lynch in Denver's preseason opener at Chicago.

Coach Vance Joseph announced after Monday's indoor practice that Siemian will get first crack against the Bears on Thursday night, while Lynch will start Denver's second game.

In other NFL news:

— The Bills have signed free agent Anquan Boldin in a move that adds a veteran presence to a mostly young and untested group of receivers. Boldin has played for the Cardinals, Ravens, 49ers and Lions, grabbing 1,076 passes for 13,779 yards and 82 touchdowns. The 14-year veteran spent last season with Detroit, where he had 67 catches for 584 yards and eight touchdowns in 16 games.

— Officials say Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry is being investigated for possible domestic battery, an allegation the player's girlfriend calls a fabrication. Estrella Cerqueira says in a statement the couple had a "vocal disagreement" but that that nothing violent took place. A spokesman for the Broward County State Attorney's office said Monday in an email the allegations were under review and no decision has been made on whether Landry will be charged.

— New Dolphins quarterback Jay Cutler won't play in the team's exhibition opener Thursday, but look for him to be starting soon enough. Coach Adam Gase says Cutler "didn't come out of retirement to stand on the sideline."

— Quarterback Brock Osweiler will start the Browns' exhibition opener on Thursday against New Orleans. Browns coach Hue Jackson announced the selection of Osweiler over Cody Kessler and rookie DeShone Kizer on Monday. Osweiler started 14 games last season for Houston before he was traded to the Browns in March.

— Latavius Murray practiced with the Vikings for the first time since he was signed in March. Murray was activated from the physical unable to perform list after missing the first 10 days of training camp following surgery on his right ankle.

— Bears guard Eric Kush will miss the season because of a torn hamstring. Coach John Fox says Kush tore the hamstring from the bone late last week. He was placed on injured reserve Monday and is scheduled for surgery on Tuesday.

— Former Patriots and Texans defensive tackle Vince Wilfork has announced his retirement from the NFL in a barbecue commercial. He tweeted the commercial showing him un-taping his ankles, hanging up his cleats and grabbing grilling tongs before dancing, cooking ribs and smoking a cigar while wearing his trademark overalls. Wilfork played 13 NFL seasons, including the last two with the Texans.

— New York Jets wide receiver Quincy Enunwa has a bulging disk in his neck that will likely require surgery and sideline him for the entire season. Coach Todd Bowles says Enunwa will seek a second opinion. The receiver is facing a recovery time of 6 to 9 months. Enunwa was projected as the Jets' No. 1 receiver. He was hurt Saturday night during practice at MetLife Stadium.

— Falcons coach Dan Quinn says Jalen Collins' second suspension for a violation of the league's policy on performance enhancers has caused a "broken" trust that could cost the cornerback his spot on the team. Collins participated in Monday's practice after his 10-game suspension to open the season was announced on Sunday. It is the second straight year he has been suspended for the start of the season, following a four-game penalty in 2016.
