Peyton Manning had limited practice work for a third consecutive day and is listed as questionable for Monday night's game at Cincinnati, but Head Coach John Fox said the quarterback "looked good" in the final session of the week.
Manning has dealt with a thigh injury all week, and received treatment during Thursday's practice after running off the field during the period that was open to media. But that did not happen during the two days of practice that followed, and Fox said backup quarterback Brock Osweiler did not receive an unusual difference in repetitions to account for Manning's injury.
"I'd say it was fairly normal to the rest of the season," Fox said.
With a game on Monday night, the Broncos had a rare Saturday practice.
Friday, wide receiver Demaryius Thomas said Manning "looked fine."
"He'll be good by game time," Thomas said. "A couple more days, he gets treatment, whatever he (has) got going on, he'll deal with that. I think by game time, he'll be ready to go."
But Manning did not have wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders as a target Saturday. He became the latest player to endure flu-like symptoms. Fox said that he anticipates Sanders will make the trip to Cincinnati.
"But we'll see what happens [Sunday], that's when we leave," added Fox of Sanders, who is listed as questionable.
Four other players are listed as questionable and had limited work Saturday: offensive tackle Ryan Clady (thigh), running backs Ronnie Hillman (foot) and Juwan Thompson (hip and knee), and cornerback Kayvon Webster (shoulder).
Center Will Montgomery had a full practice of work Saturday after being limited the previous two days because of a knee problem. He is listed as probable for Monday night.
Six other players were listed on the injury report, but had a full workload Saturday: tight ends Jacob Tamme (rib cage) and Julius Thomas (ankle), wide receivers Demaryius Thomas (ankle) and Cody Latimer (concussion), offensive tackle Chris Clark (back) and running back C.J. Anderson (ankle).
Linebacker Brandon Marshall and offensive tackle Paul Cornick were officially ruled out with a sprained foot and a toe injury, respectively. Neither practiced this week.
