Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is injured! And not practicing! Somebody warm up Brock Osweiler!
OK, not quite. As the Denver Post's Mike Klis tells it, Manning didn't practice Wednesday so as to rest an ankle injury. He picked up the injury during Denver's Week 6 win over Jacksonville. Manning is fully expected to return to practice Thursday.
I wonder what practice is like for a 15-year quarterback who is one of the most studious, successful players in league history. At this point, I figure Manning can basically choose when he wants to practice -- think of it like a modified version of what Tony Gonzalez does during training camp. Regardless, he'll be ready to scorch the Redskins' secondary on Sunday. I think you should start him in your fantasy league. That advice is why I'm an "expert."
