Following Saturday's practice, the team designated Manning as 'questionable' to play Monday night, meaning there's at least a chance he doesn't suit up for the first time in his Broncos career. Manning suffered a thigh injury last week after he has dealing with a sickness that caused him to miss part of the Week 15 win over San Diego.
If for whatever reason he were to miss this game, Brock Osweiler would be in line for his first career NFL start, and it would come in primetime with Denver still in the hunt for the No. 1 seed in the AFC playoffs. Don't expect to see Manning sitting this one out with so much on the line. He won't allow it.
P. Manning threw normally in practice today, dropbacks, set-up, follow-through all fine...oh, and #Broncos still have shot at homefield.— Jeff Legwold (@Jeff_Legwold) December 20, 2014
