On Thursday three prominent Denver Broncos, quarterback Peyton Manning and wide receivers Wes Welker and Eric Decker, returned to practice.
Manning missed a couple of days of practice with a minor ankle injury.
After practice Thursday, Broncos’ head coach John Fox told reporters Manning didn’t participate in practice, which could be somewhat alarming considering how minor his injury was considered to be.
Fox, however, was just kidding.
“No, I’m sorry. … I was on the wrong day. I’ll move over a column,” Fox told reports via Jeff Legwold of ESPN. “Full [participant].”
Fox went on to say that Manning looked “fine.”
Manning took his normal amount of Thursday snaps and will start when the Broncos host the Washington Redskins on Sunday.
Manning and the Broncos are on pace to break several records set by Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in 2007. On the year, Manning has completed 207 of 289 passes for 2,565 yards with 25 touchdowns and three interceptions.
The Broncos will try to bounce back from their setback of the season, a 39-33 loss at the hands of the Indianapolis Colts when they host the Redskins at 4:25 pm EST Sunday.
