For Broncos today tackle Ty Sambrailo (shoulder) not practicing, but was on the field working with strength and conditioning coach Luke Richesson so is making progress toward returning to lineup and wide receiver Cody Latimer (groin) was not practicing. Quarterback Peyton Manning looked to be sticking to the usual Wednesday schedule -- on field but not throwing in drills. Louis Vasquez, Evan Mathis and DeMarcus Ware held out largely as rest days.
