Denver Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian did not practice Wednesday due to a sprained foot, head coach Gary Kubiak told CBS Sports.

Siemian, 24, suffered the injury during an overtime loss to the Kansas City Chief on Sunday, according to Mike Klis of KUSA-TV. In that game, he was was sacked five times and stripped for a safety.

“A little sore … nothing too crazy,” Siemian told reporters of his foot.

Kubiak added Siemian is wearing a protective boot and that he is day-to-day.

“Really not looking too far away,” Kubiak said. “Want to take it one day at a time.”

A foot sprain is a tear of ligaments, the tough bands of fibrous tissue that connect bones to one another inside a joint, with sprains ranging in severity from Grade I to Grade III.

The breakdown of those grades is as follows:

Grade I: The injury is fairly mild, causing microscopic tears or stretching of the ligaments.

Grade II: The ligaments may be partially torn, and the stretching is more severe.

Grade III: The ligaments are completely torn, so the foot may be unstable and no longer able to bear weight.

At Delray Beach Podiatry, Dr. Ian S. Goldbaum, a podiatric physician and surgeon with over 30 years of experience, has seen many foot sprains walk, or should I say hobble, through the doors of his office and believes that Siemian shouldn’t be out for an extended period of time if he is suffering from a Grade 1 sprain.

“He’s probably dealing with some myositis, neuritis and inflammation of the nerve in muscle,” Dr. Goldbaum said. “It just needs to rest over a short period of time before he can get back to playing. They’ll keep him off of it with some light walking, elevation and compression.”

Looking around the league for injury comparisons, Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Jacquizz Rodgers has already missed three games since sustaining a sprained foot late in the fourth quarter of an overtime loss to the Oakland Raiders on Oct. 31.

That being said, Dr. Goldbaum believes that Siemian won’t be out nearly that long due to his position.

“The demands placed on the feet of a running back are far greater than that of a quarterback,” Dr. Goldbaum said. “Once the training staff has worked out a plan to help him return to the field without risking further injury, he should be able to be effective while continuing to rehab the injury.”

Denver (7-4) visits Jacksonville (2-9) on Sunday.
