Injury Report:

The Broncos still have quite a few banged up players, but it appears as for most of them, losing a week of game action might have done wonders for their injuries.

The biggest name is Peyton Manning. While he has already been ruled out for Sunday’s game, he will be taking part in practice this week on a limited basis. There is a good chance we might see him take the field in Week 16 against the Cincinnati Bengals. But, of course, that remains to be seen.

Some notable names that did not participate in practice are running back C.J. Anderson, safety T.J. Ward, and safety Darian Stewart. All three guys are going to be key in Sunday’s matchup. Anderson is expected to play this weekend.

Owen Daniels had his veteran’s rest day and did not participate. But he figures to be a go for Thursday’s practice.

The other names are on the list. While it is still up in the air on who will suit up and who won’t, it is important to keep an eye on those who did not participate in practice and see how they progress during the week.
