Peyton Manning is back on the practice field

Peyton Manning AP

The Broncos have said that Peyton Manning will start when he’s healthy.

And while we don’t know how healthy he is, he’s at least moving.

According to Mike Klis of KUSA in Denver, Manning is back on the field and practicing with his teammates today, for the first time in 31 days.

Of course, so was Brock Osweiler, who hadn’t lost before last week’s game against the Raiders, which was complicating their decision.

It will be interesting to monitor Manning’s condition this week, as he’s not expected to be in uniform this weekend against the Steelers.

But if he gets through the next few days without a setback, next week’s home game against the Bengals become a far more interesting proposition.

    They’re letting Peyton keep the toque and jacket. For now.

    Let’s say Peyton starts the next Broncos game and runs a few plays….then he is replaced. Does Manning still get credit for the “Win”?

    It’s all being set up for a rested Peyton to make one final playoff run. He’s faded at the end the last few years so taking a month off will hopefully rest his arm for a final push towards a fairy tale ending.
    Doesn’t seem likely with a patchwork offensive line. But here’s hopin’.

    Manning please come back for the playoffs.

    you wouldn’t be suggesting that the broncos are lying on injury reports, then, would you? would that make them serial cheaters, too, or…?

    How’d that work out for Pats fans last time?

    “How’d that work out for Pats fans last time?”

    Last time was two years ago. In case you haven’t noticed, a lot has changed.

    The Pats have Gronk back, the game will likely be in Foxboro, and Peyton Manning is a shell of his 2013 self.

    It worked great, he and the Broncos flamed out at home deliberately against the Colts so as to avoid having to play the Patriots, and then we won the Super Bowl.

    Denver is desperate. What to do? Go with Brock who hasn’t led his team to a TD in seven quarters or go with an aging Hall of Famer who is having the worst season of his career. Very tough call. I would give it to Peyton and hope he can have a Hollywood finish.

    Isn’t the Brady v Manning playoff record at 2-2 ? Not sure why Pats fans would be happy to see him, you lot have lost the last 2 playoff games you faced against his team.

    Please Peyton, play week 16. Reggie Nelson needs to pad his interception stats. 😂

    It probably has something to do with the fact that Brady is playing better than ever, and Manning’s last game was the worst performance by a quarterback, ever, at any level, from Powder Puff football on up.

    If I were Kubiak I’d want as many options as possible. The way Pittsburgh is playing right now they are unlikely to lose at home. There’s no telling what McCarron can do with the Bengals and very little film on him which makes game planning tough, just like when Osweiler went in for Manning. KC has 2 very winnable games (Ravens, Browns) and finishes at home against Oakland. If they finish tied KC wins the tie breaker and Denver could end up a wildcard or even out of it all together. So, yeah if you are Kubiak with suddenly little room for error, a rested Manning as an option if Osweiler stumbles looks pretty good compared to an untried Trevor Siemian

    Did you watch the Superbowl? It was awesome!! Peyton scored more points for the Seahawks than he did for the Broncos.

    And before you start spouting Anti-Brady rhetoric, I’m cheering for the Seahawks. I still think Brady is the greatest QB of all time and I think Manning might be the greatest regular season QB of all time.

    But it’s winter. And it’s cold outside. So put Manning in a sweater and sit him on the bench if you plan to do anything in the playoffs. Or has history taught you nothing?

    Time to start selling Wranglers and razors like Favre.

    Um, no. Pretty well documented injury. Lying on injury reports entails not listing a player on injury report and then not playing him or listing a player as questionable and then playing him all snaps. How could listing a player on an injury report and then not practicing or playing him be lying? You have some kind of bias that’s blinding your logic.
