The two-week gap between the conference championship games and the Super Bowl results in a somewhat strange approach to the injury report. The teams scheduled to play in the title game supply traditional injury reports not only on the Friday before the Super Bowl but the preceding Friday.
The Panthers have seven players who currently are 50-50 propositions to play. The Broncos have three.
They are safety Darian Stewart (knee), guard Louis Vasquez (knee), and safety T.J. Ward (ankle). Neither Stewart nor Ward practiced all week.
Probable for the game are safety Josh Bush (shoulder), tight end Owen Daniels (knees), linebacker Todd Davis (shoulder), cornerback Chris Harris (shoulder), safety Shiloh Keo (quadricep), quarterback Peyton Manning (foot), linebacker Brandon Marshall (ankle), guard Evan Mathis (ankle), and linebacker DeMarcus Ware (knee).
While quarterback Brock Osweiler presumably won’t play in Super Bowl 50 (barring injury or blowout), Osweiler has exited the injury report for the first time this postseason, which means that his sprained MCL is healed.
