According to ESPN, Denver Broncos quarterback Mark Sanchez recently underwent surgery on his left thumb and is expected to miss the beginning of OTA’s that start next week.
Sanchez initially injured the thumb while working in the weight room on Thursday and underwent the surgery Saturday in Vail, Colo. The team described the injury as a torn ligament in the thumb of his non-throwing hand.
Sanchez is expected to miss a couple weeks which will allow the Broncos back-ups Trevor Siemian and first-round draft pick Paxton Lynch to take the snaps at the start of OTAs.
The Broncos acquired Sanchez for a conditional seventh-round pick in a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles in March.
