Broncos coach Gary Kubiak says Brock Osweiler's eye infection has largely cleared up and Peyton Manning had a good week of work.
Osweiler will make his sixth consecutive start Monday night when the Broncos (10-4) host the Bengals (11-3). Manning will be inactive again. He hasn't played since tearing the plantar fascia in his left foot Nov. 15.
After experiencing a setback last week, Manning returned to throwing on his own indoors this week.
Kubiak watched video of Manning's workouts, but he set off a firestorm Thursday when he offhandedly mentioned he'd witness Manning's "big workout on Saturday."
“Yeah, that was good. It went really well. He had a good week, worked really hard this morning—well, he worked every morning, but worked out really hard this morning conditioning wise and throwing wise. I was over there and saw it firsthand. I thought it was a really good week, so real positive.”
Truth is, it wasn't as pivotal as many media outlets portrayed it.
Kubiak says: "I need to shut up. It was a workout."
