The Broncos went just one practice without Peyton Manning. The quarterback, along with receivers Wes Welker and Eric Decker, returned to practice on Thursday after sitting out injured the day before, according to Lindsay Jones of USA Today and ESPN's Jeff Legwold.
Manning injured his ankle in the Broncos' first loss of the season to the Colts in Week 7. He has been expected to play all week but took Wednesday off for resting purposes. Welker is also dealing with an ankle injury, and Decker has been bothered by a toe issue. Both receivers are expected to play on Sunday against the Redskins.
Manning leads the league in passing touchdowns, passing yards and in several other categories. This has had an impact on his teammates, as Decker is second in the league in receiving yards and Welker is tied for first in the league in receiving touchdowns with his teammate, tight end Julius Thomas.
The Broncos will host the Redskins on Sunday at 4:25 p.m. ET on Fox.
