Injury Report

As it was stated on Monday, Gary Kubiak will sit Peyton Manning for the Week 11 matchup against the Bears. Brock Osweiler will get his first start. But who else is banged up?

A possible weapon for Osweiler missed practice as Emmanuel Sanders has been dealing with a bum ankle and a finger injury. The buzz around is that he should be good to go on Sunday. But we will know more as the week continues on.

Demarcus Ware continues to sit out of practice as he deals with his back injury. It was announced on Thursday that Ware will in fact miss the Week 11 matchup this Sunday because of it. Hopefully he can practice next week and be ready for New England.

Another hit to the defensive side of the football was the new injuries to Antonio Smith (hip) and Vance Walker. (shoulder) Both were limited in practice on Wednesday.

So, with those injuries, the team is not completely banged up. But there are some significant injuries. Hopefully those players that are hurt have a quick recovery.
