Peyton Manning throws for the first time since having walking boot removed


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. --As expected, Peyton Manning had a throwing session Wednesday, taking another step in his recovery from a plantar fascia tear.

Manning threw passes for "about a half hour" Wednesday morning inside the Pat Bowlen Fieldhouse, Head Coach Gary Kubiak said.

"He went through some drill work and stuff," Kubiak added. "We're going day-to-day with that, and we'll see how he comes out of each day, but yes, there was some [on-]field work done."

Kubiak said that he was not sure whether a rest day would follow Manning's throwing session. The 18-year veteran quarterback took a rest day Tuesday after working on rehabilitation work from Saturday through Monday.

"We'll see how he comes out of each day, so we'll just take it day by day," Kubiak said.

Manning has already been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders, the fourth consecutive game he has missed. He was in a walking cast for a week through Dec. 1 and then in a walking boot from Dec. 1 through Dec. 4.

Kubiak said he will closely monitor Manning's work.

"Yeah, I am definitely involved with them," he said, "whether it's film or personally over there depending on what's going on that part of the day.

"We've got a good little process going on right now. We'll stick to it throughout the course of the week."
