Christmas Day offers an escape for many of the Broncos as players and coaches will spend time with their families and enjoy the week’s off day. Tuesday, though, will mean a return to work for the final time this season as the Broncos approach their season-ending game against the Kansas City Chiefs. And as the football week begins Tuesday, the Broncos will again face a decision regarding whether Brock Osweiler or Paxton Lynch will start at quarterback. Lynch, who is recovering from a high-ankle sprain he suffered in Week 12 against the Raiders, practiced on a limited basis on Wednesday and Thursday ahead of the Broncos’ game in Washington. He was a full participant Friday, but Osweiler started and played the entirety of Sunday’s contest. Head Coach Vance Joseph noted earlier in the week that Lynch’s health would play a key role in determining whether he would start vs. Washington. Following Sunday’s game, Joseph reiterated that point. “Our goal is to see him play, so absolutely,” Joseph said. “If he’s ready to go next week, he will probably play for us.” Lynch and Osweiler split repetitions before the Broncos traveled to Washington, but Joseph did not say after Sunday’s game whether that formula would remain the same ahead of Week 17.
