The Denver Broncos enter Week 11 with a new starting quarterback in Brock Osweiler as Peyton Manning may or may not be healthy enough to return in a few weeks. Osweiler won't be helped by a slew of guys ailing pretty badly with various nagging injuries, but that could change rapidly by Sunday.

On the status of Emmanuel Sanders, head coach Gary Kubiak thinks he'll be ready saying, "He would have practiced today if we would have been outside, but we were inside due to [snow on] the field. We gave him a day off of the turf. He took all of the walk through and everything, so I would expect him to do everything."

As for Manning, Kubiak just wants him to focus on getting healthy saying, "He's just rehabbing. Not even in the meetings. Just spending the day with Greek can get one-on-one with him when all of the players are involved. He's had a couple of good days. We're just going to stay after it. That's the plan right now, just to continue to do that throughout the course of the week."

The Chicago Bears are looking okay, but have a few guys dinged up at key positions. The loss of Matt Forte is less of an issue now that Jeremy Langford has exploded on the scene the last two weeks. However, both Eddie Royal and Alshon Jeffrey are dealing with nagging injuries that could affect them in Sunday's game.
