The Denver Broncos got an all-time great back at practice in Peyton Manning and though there are plenty of people doubting his ability to come back and play at a high level, it is clear that many of the people inside that locker room are anxious to see him return.
Gary Kubiak on how he looked today said, "He did fine. Just passed him talking to him just now, but we basically did individual and did a couple periods. Took a seven-on-seven period, the defensive periods, so took a step today. We'll take a look at tomorrow and probably maybe do a little bit more tomorrow. Just day-by-day right now, but a step back in the right direction today."
Max Garcia was one player in particular was excited to see him return.
"It was good. It was really good seeing him out there," Garcia sad, "We all know that he's been working extremely hard to get back on the field with us. Just seeing him out there throwing the ball and taking some reps during practice, it was good to see that. It was encouraging. We know that we're going to need him, so the sooner [he's back], the better."
Win or lose, next week is going to be an interesting conversation outside of Dove Valley as Kubiak is finally forced into making a decision on two healthy quarterbacks.
On the other side of the fence, the Pittsburgh Steelers are looking relatively healthy. They have a lot of guys who did not participate today, but I would expect a good chunk of those guys to be game ready come Sunday. Brock Osweiler is going to bring his best game, as well as that No Fly Zone of a defense.
Here is the full Week 15 injury report.
