As if there was much doubt before, there’s now an official word to go along with it.
Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, who took a day off Wednesday to rest his sore right ankle, was listed as probable for Sunday’s game against the Chiefs on the team’s official injury report.
While there was never much doubt after he returned to practice Thursday, any time there’s a player of his magnitude, the spotlight will shine bright on his every move.
The news wasn’t all good for the Broncos, however. Cornerback Champ Bailey is still listed as doubtful. He practiced this week, but gave no indications he was ready to get back into games. He’s played a grand total of six quarters this season.
