ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Peyton Manning’s left foot was sore Friday so he didn’t practice after running the Denver Broncos’ scout team for two days.
Manning’s foot has bothered him for months and he’s been sidelined since mid-November with a torn plantar fascia that required a cast or boot for 10 days.

He returned to practice Wednesday but after two days of running the scout team, he reported to work Friday saying he was sore.
“So we said, OK, we’ll stop for the weekend,” coach Gary Kubiak said.
Kubiak had already ruled out the league’s only five-time MVP for Sunday’s game at Pittsburgh (8-5), when Brock Osweiler will make his fifth consecutive start for Denver (10-3).
Manning was walking around after practice without any limp.
