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."
