DeMarcus Ware and Brock Osweiler both returned to practice for the Denver Broncos on Monday, reports Josh Alper of NBC Sports.

Ware sustained an injury to his knee during the Broncos’ Week 17 victory over the Chargers. The linebacker rested his knee during the team’s bye week and an MRI did not reveal any serious concerns.

Quarterback Brock Osweiler also missed practice time after he sustained a knee sprain during the 27–20 win over San Diego.

Regardless of Osweiler’s return, the Broncos have already named Peyton Manning the starting quarterback for the team’s game against the Steelers on Sunday.
