ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- **Left tackle Ty Sambrailo spent the opening periods of Wednesday's practice working with a team trainer while most of his teammates began preparations for Sunday's game with the Oakland Raiders.
Sambrailo suffered a shoulder injury against Detroit on Sept. 27 and did not play against the Minnesota Vikings a week later, but in the last 10 days he has progressed to where he was able to do conditioning and stretching work at practice.
"He's doing pretty good," Head Coach Gary Kubiak said. "Obviously he didn't practice today, but he was out here. We put him through some stuff; we had him moving around. We're taking big steps forward.
"I think it's still a day-to-day deal, but today was a good day."
Other participation notes:
... Quarterback Peyton Manning received a veteran's rest day, as he has the previous two Wednesdays.
... Wide receiver Cody Latimer was on the sideline because of a groin injury suffered in the first half last Sunday.
... Offensive linemen Louis Vasquez and Evan Mathis were at practice, but did not take part as they were given the chance to rest. Each also received an off-day last week.
... Outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware also received a rest day. Kubiak said that Ware left Sunday's game "with his neck bothering him a little bit. He wanted to go [Wednesday], we just held him (back)."
... Wide receiver Demaryius Thomas practiced on a limited basis, three days after suffering some neck soreness against the Vikings. He returned to the game after being hurt.
... TE James Casey, OT Ryan Harris and safety Omar Bolden (foot) also practiced on a limited basis.
Derek Wolfe returned to practice on Wednesday as the Broncos began preparation for the Raiders.
