DENVER (AP) - Denver Broncos quarterback Paxton Lynch left Saturday night’s exhibition game against the Green Bay Packers midway through the third quarter with an injury to his passing shoulder.

Lynch, a first-round pick out of Memphis a year ago, was the runner-up to Trevor Siemian in the competition for the Broncos’ starting job. Broncos coach Vance Joseph settled on Siemian earlier this week.

Siemian played the first half and Lynch opened the third quarter. He led a 10-play drive ending in a 46-yard field goal by Brandon McManus, and had a pair of scrambles.

However, on the ensuing Broncos possession, rookie Kyle Sloter came on to quarterback the Broncos and the team announced that Lynch was out of the game with a right shoulder injury.
