Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is all over the news on Sunday morning, but not because he’s returning to the team’s lineup.
That reportedly won’t be a news item to look for at any point the rest of this year either. Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reported on Sunday morning that the Broncos “are now Brock Osweiler’s team.”
Per Glazer, it looked like there was a chance that Manning could return to the lineup earlier this week but that those plans have been put “on hold” as the team moves forward with Osweiler the rest of the way. That might explain why coach Gary Kubiak initially called Manning’s Saturday workout “big” before downplaying its import on Saturday.
Glazer also reports that Osweiler has a Grade Two separation of his left shoulder. Osweiler hurt the shoulder against the Steelers last week and went to the locker room a bit early to have it checked out before returning to the game for the second half.
As for Manning, he’s had plenty to keep him busy while Osweiler gets ready for Monday night’s game against the Bengals.
