Peyton Manning questionable vs. Bengals; Emmanuel Sanders misses practice with flu

New, comments

The Denver Broncos are banged up and ill heading into Monday Night Football vs. the Cincinnati Bengals.

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is questionable Monday night against the Bengals, coach John Fox said, as the thigh injury that saw him miss four snaps against the San Diego Chargers last week has lingered to keep him limited in practice all week.

ESPN's Jeff Legwold said he expects Manning to start as usual, a day after Mark Kiszla of the Denver Post called for the Broncos to rest Manning.

Fox provided injury updates for a number of other players as well.

Wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders, who had yet to appear on the injury reports this week, missed practice Saturday due to flu-like symptoms. Sanders is officially questionable for Monday's game.

We'll have the full injury report right here when it's released.

I agree with Leggy; Manning will play, but even writing about the ailments is exhausting. The injuries and illnesses are really piling up. A playoff bye sure sounds good about now, doesn't it?
