Peyton Manning has yet to return to the practice field but is close to returning. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported that Manning will find the practice field sooner rather than later.
Rapoport tweeted this update out:
The bigger question is not when Manning will return, but if he will be the starting quarterback for the Broncos when he is back at full strength.
FOX’s Jay Glazier reported that Broncos officials feel his is now “Brock Osweiler’s team.”
Glazier reported that Osweiler will remain the starting quarterback even when Manning returns unless there is a big collapse by the Broncos.
According to Glazier, Manning is working out away from the team to avoid being a “distraction” for the Broncos. There has not been a specific timetable released for Manning’s return but he is doing individual on-field workouts. Manning is nearing a return to the practice field.
