Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is questionable for Monday night's game against the Bengals in Cincinnati. Denver coach John Fox said that the number of snaps backup Brock Osweiler took in practice on Saturday is similar to the number he's received the rest of the season.
Manning left practice on Thursday to undergo treatment on his thigh after leaving last Sunday's game against the Chargers late in the second quarter following an attempted block on linebacker Donald Butler.
He was also reportedly playing with flu-like symptoms.
Manning returned in the second half to help lead the Broncos to a 22-10 victory that clinched a fourth consecutive AFC West title. He finished with 233 yards, one touchdown and zero interceptions.
"I was in some discomfort and had some limitations, so obviously if you feel like you can't do your job and you can't move to protect yourself, you're going to hurt the team," Manning said Sunday, according to The Denver Post. "I felt I got a little relief there at halftime and was able to go the second half."
Over 14 games this season, Manning has completed 67.1 percent of his passes for 37 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. The 38-year-old is in his third season with the Broncos after spending his first 14 with the Indianapolis Colts.
