The Denver Broncos have dealt with a litany of injuries to their roster over the past few weeks, but are suddenly getting a bit of good news.  

Yesterday, we received good news that Peyton Manning practiced for the first time in weeks; and today, the Denver Post reported that Manning practiced for the second straight day.

The Denver Post’s Troy Renck reports that in the second day of Manning returning to practice for the Denver Broncos, the quarterback has made good progress in his recovery from plantar faciatis in his foot. Renck also reports that Manning went through similar drills as yesterday:

"“Manning went through similar drills as he did Wednesday, dropping back, throwing passes, working on his footwork.”"

Head Coach Gary Kubiak indicated that Peyton Manning will remain inactive for the Denver Broncos on Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, meaning that Brock Osweiler will once again get the start for Denver. Peyton Manning has not played since November 15th against the Chiefs. The Denver Broncos have gone with Brock Osweiler at quarterback since then, and he has played well, throwing for over 1000 yards and 5 touchdowns in 4 games — winning three of them.
