To no one's surprise, Peyton Manning was not a participant during Denver's practice on Wednesday.

This is a result of Manning re-injuring his sprained ankle this past Sunday against the Chargers. He first injured it against the Colts.

However, it's purely a precautionary move to hold Manning out of practice. He's still scheduled to start against the Chiefs, barring any unforeseen circumstances. Look for Manning to remain out this week or to be extremely limited over the next two days.
