Broncos sticking with Brock Osweiler against Bengals
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) The Denver Broncos are sticking with Brock Osweiler.
Coach Gary Kubiak informed the team Wednesday that Osweiler will make his sixth straight start Monday night.
Denver (10-4) hosts the Cincinnati Bengals (11-3).
Peyton Manning hasn't played since Nov. 15 because of a torn plantar fascia in his left foot.
Manning returned to practice last week but spent his two days on the field doing individual drills and running the scout team. He didn't practice Friday because of soreness.
The Broncos are 3-2 with Osweiler, who's been victimized by a leaky line and big drops by Vernon Davis and Demaryius Thomas in back-to-back losses.
Denver still has a shot at the top seed in the AFC but could also miss the playoffs altogether.
