Trevor Siemian is back.

The Denver Broncos quarterback will start against the Chargers on Thursday Night Football, according the Denver Post.

He missed Denver’s loss to the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday with a sprained left shoulder.

Siemian was listed as questionable as recently as Wednesday, but most figured he’d start against the Chargers. He spoke optimistically about his recovery throughout the week.

In four games this year, he’s averaging 206 passing yards a game, completing 67.3 percent of his passes and has tossed six touchdowns and three interceptions.

The Broncos kick off against San Diego at 6:25 p.m. MT. You can watch it on CBS, the NFL Network or Twitter.
