It's Peyton Manning's 2015 debut as the Denver Broncos starting quarterback is set to start in his first NFL action since January's playoff exit. It's also Broncos coach Gary Kubiak's homecoming of sorts - Kubiak coached the Houston Texans for eight years, along with many members of his current Broncos staff (Wade Phillips, Rick Dennison, Bill Kollar, and more).

Manning, Kubiak and the Broncos will face J.J. Watt and the Houston Texans in Preseason Week 2 action. Here's how to watch the game.

Injury Report

Among Broncos starters on offense, only Emmanuel Sanders is expected to miss the game (hamstring). Cody Latimer will start in Sanders' place. On defense, Brandon Marshall is good to go, but Danny Trevathan will wait a bit longer. "I think that Danny has closed the gap," Kubiak said. "If you all noticed, Danny has worked pretty much full time this week and practiced really well, but we just think that Brandon is just a little bit ahead."


"I think you always want to be out there and you want to play as long as you possibly can," Mannin said. "I don't know how long we'll stay in there, but obviously you want to be in there and you want to try to convert some third downs. It'd be nice to finish some drives with some touchdowns and get a mix of the runs and the passes. If we can face any situation—some of the situations we work out here in practice—I think that'd be ideal to get some red zone work, to get some goal line short yardage. You never know how the game's going to go, but it'd be nice to get some of those situations.
