Champ has been suffering from a Lisfranc foot injury all season. He made his regular season debut against the Colts only to re-aggravate the injury in the 3rd quarter. Champ has not practiced since.
On the other side of the team, Peyton Manning did not practice today.
Peyton Manning isn't practicing today, per reporters there. Jack Del Rio did say he'd get a day off or two.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) November 13, 2013
Much Ado about Nothing Broncos Country. Peyton is recovering from a high ankle sprain he suffered against Jacksonville and has played through since then. He took a hit low from Corey Liuget late in the game against San Diego this last week, but after having an MRI on Monday was shown to have no new structural damage.
Many of us expected Peyton to be out of practice, it wouldn't bother me one bit if he was not on the practice field until walk-throughs late in the week.

Nate Irving is not in pads, and working out with a team trainer. Champ Bailey is practicing for the first time since before the Indy game.— Andrew Mason (@MaseDenver) November 13, 2013
We could use Duke's speed back even if his inexperience has yielded some big plays. Mike Adams had a bad day at the office covering Antonio Gates last week. Nate Irving plays mostly on base downs in the Broncos 5-2 look.
