ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) Brock Osweiler remains the Denver Broncos' starting quarterback pending medical tests on his injured left shoulder, and Peyton Manning will try to return to practice Wednesday.

Coach Gary Kubiak said ''nothing has changed'' with his QB situation Monday, a day after Denver blew a double-digit halftime lead for the second consecutive week.

Kubiak said Osweiler was ''sore today ... and all indications are that he'll be OK.''

Osweiler was injured when he scrambled for 7 yards in the second quarter of Denver's 34-27 loss at Pittsburgh, where the Broncos (10-4) blew a 17-point lead.

Manning has missed five weeks with a torn left plantar fascia.

Kubiak will meet with both QBs and ''have a plan in place when we get to Wednesday.''
