The Denver Broncos aren't ready to name Brock Osweiler their starter for the remainder of the season just yet.
"No decision has been made on our QB situation beyond this week, contrary to speculation," the team tweeted Wednesday following a report based on anonymous sources that Manning wouldn't return to the starting lineup even when healthy.
Manning's cast was removed Wednesday, but he's in a walking boot until Friday. Then rehab starts. Manning has a partially torn plantar fascia that led to the switch to Osweiler three weeks ago.
Manning says he doesn't know when it will be healed.
The Broncos (9-2) have beaten Chicago and New England in Osweiler's two starts.
