Peyton Manning was given a day of rest on Thursday.
Manning exited last week’s game against the Chargers with a thigh injury and now social media is is panic.
Came down people. The Broncos had their first practice of the week today since they play on Thursday night. This is merely a day of rest and nothing more can be read into it right now.
Manning should have no trouble returning to the practice field for Friday’s practice. The bigger concern should be the decline in play Manning has shown over the last handful of seasons as the year wraps up.
For #Broncos Manning was on field for walk-through and stretch, went back inside for full practice, given a rest day.

Manning is on pace for 42 touchdowns and 4,735 yards this season. Those numbers are substantial drop offs from last year but seriously anything is going to look like a let down compared to the record setting season Manning had in 2013. (55 touchdowns, 5,477_yards)
