ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - With the Denver Broncos' top two quarterbacks sidelined by injuries, rookie Tom Brandstater will start the team's preseason finale Thursday night against Arizona.
Brandstater played more than a half in Sunday's 27-17 loss to Chicago, leading the Broncos to two touchdowns after coming on for the injured Kyle Orton.
Orton gashed and apparently dislocated his right index finger when he struck a defender's hand with his passing hand during a follow through.
The Broncos were already without backup Chris Simms, who suffered a left high ankle sprain during an exhibition game the week before at Seattle.
