Manning misses practice
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - Peyton Manning wasn't in pads today because of a sore ankle as the Denver Broncos began preparations for the Washington Redskins.
After stretching with his teammates, Manning donned his helmet but was strictly an observer as his backups took snaps during the first part of practice that was open to reporters.
Manning chatted with coaches while his teammates practiced. He says he will be back at practice on Thursday.
Manning took some hard hits from former teammate Robert Mathis in the Broncos' 39-33 loss at Indianapolis on Sunday night but never came out of the game.
