ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) As Brock Osweiler prepares for his first career start, there are no No. 17 jerseys for sale at the Denver Broncos' pro shop at their indoor practice facility.

There are, however, still plenty of No. 18 Peyton Manning jerseys and shirts available for holiday shoppers.

Manning is dealing with a variety of ailments - foot, ribs, shoulder - and won't suit up Sunday when the Broncos (7-1) visit the Chicago Bears (4-5).

Manning had the worst performance of his career on the same day he became the league's all-time passing leader and was benched in the third quarter against Kansas City last week.

Coach Gary Kubiak decided Osweiler would start this weekend so Manning could focus on getting healthy.
