ESPN's Rich Cimini reports the "feeling" around Denver is the Broncos will attempt to re-sign impending free agent Brock Osweiler.
Osweiler gave back the starting job to Peyton Manning after a lackluster run in the middle of the season, but the Broncos are looking at a bleak situation at quarterback moving forward. Manning will likely retire after the Super Bowl, and the Broncos will not want to pay him $19 million or eat his $21.5 million cap hit even if he decides to play another season. With Osweiler a free agent, Manning's exit would leave 2015 seventh-round pick Trevor Siemian as the only quarterback on the roster. With not much help available in free agency or the draft, Osweiler may end up being the best option. Feb 4 - 12:24 PM

Brock Osweiler (knee, questionable) returned to practice on Friday.

It sounds like he'll be listed as a limited participant. Osweiler should be active for Sunday's Divisional game against the Steelers, though he'll have to settle for backup duty behind starter Peyton Manning. Trevor Siemian is Denver's third-string QB.
Jan 15 - 1:38 PM

Brock Osweiler (knee) remained sidelined Thursday.

Osweiler suddenly looks questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers, but coach Gary Kubiak has expressed optimism that he will be ready. If Osweiler can't go, Trevor Siemian will be the next man up if an elderly Peyton Manning can't finish the game.
Jan 14 - 2:13 PM

Brock Osweiler (knee) didn't practice Wednesday.

Osweiler remains on track to back up Peyton Manning despite the missed practice. Coach Gary Kubiak didn't rule out having three quarterbacks active this week.
Jan 13 - 7:05 PM

Brock Osweiler (knee) returned to practice Monday.

He will likely be limited, but the practice puts him on track to back up Peyton Manning in the Divisional Round. OLB DeMarcus Ware (knee) was also back at practice.
Jan 11 - 12:55 PM

Broncos coach Gary Kubiak doesn't expect Brock Osweiler (knee) to practice on Saturday.

Denver has a bye this week so it's not the end of the world. The Broncos may have to start looking at backup options if Osweiler isn't practicing by next week. Peyton Manning is locked in as the starter for Denver's playoff opener.

Broncos backup QB Brock Osweiler is dealing with a knee injury, but expected to be ready for the Divisional Round.

Osweiler is being held out of practice, but is expected to return by the weekend. With 10 days to heal up for the playoffs, Osweiler will almost certainly be ready to hold Peyton Manning's clipboard.
Jan 7 - 2:37 PM

Brock Osweiler was benched in the third quarter of Sunday's Week 17 game against the Chargers in favor of Peyton Manning.

Osweiler turned the ball over three times in the first half with two interceptions and one fumble. Before getting pulled, he completed 14-of-22 passes for 232 yards, one score, and the three turnovers. The score was a 72-yard hookup with Demaryius Thomas on the opening possession. Manning returned to practice this past week from his foot injury and is now back in the conversation to start for Denver in the playoffs. He led the Broncos right down the field on a touchdown drive on his first possession back since Week 10.
Jan 3 - 6:39 PM

Broncos coach Gary Kubiak confirmed Brock Osweiler will start Week 17 against the Chargers.

Peyton Manning said he hopes to begin practicing this week, but Osweiler played well enough in a comeback win Monday night to get the nod. Osweiler has struggled to move the offense at times, but he also made some big-time throws Monday night. Both quarterbacks need the running game to be effective to find success, and Osweiler has not made many big mistakes. Even if Peyton gets healthy, the Broncos will likely ride Osweiler as far as he will take them in the playoffs.

Brock Osweiler completed 27-of-39 passes for 299 yards, one touchdown, and zero interceptions in the Broncos' 20-17, Week 16 overtime win over the Bengals on Monday night.

The Bengals came out guns blazing in the first quarter on their opening possession, running a 15-play opening drive that ended in an A.J. Green touchdown. They came right back down the field and capped it off with a six-yard Mohamed Sanu rushing score to stake themselves to an early 14-0 lead. The Broncos were booed off the field at halftime, trailing 14-3. But they were the ones making the noise after the break, as the Denver fans were as loud as any fanbase in a game this season. On their first second-half possession, Osweiler capped it by hooking up with Emmanuel Sanders for a six-yard score. The Broncos ran more up-tempo, no-huddle after the break, allowing Osweiler to find a rhythm, and it was a way to tire the Cincinnati defense. Denver has clinched a playoff spot at 11-4.

FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reports Brock Osweiler will start the rest of the season "barring some sort of collapse."

Glazer said the Broncos are now "Brock Osweiler's team" and any talk of Peyton Manning taking back the starting job has been "put on hold." There are plenty of qualifications here, but the report makes sense after Manning suffered a setback last week. Osweiler has regressed in the last several weeks, but Manning has already shown he cannot be effective at less than 100 percent. No matter who is starting, the Broncos will have to rely on their defense to find any postseason success.

Brock Osweiler (non-throwing shoulder) is practicing in full for Week 16.

Osweiler's "injury" isn't a concern, but his recent play is. There's reason to believe Osweiler might completely implode against the Bengals, leaving him as nothing more than a desperation QB2 for the fantasy finals.
Thu, Dec 24, 2015 05:36:00 PM

The Broncos confirmed Brock Osweiler as their starting quarterback for Week 16 against the Bengals.

Peyton Manning (foot) will not be active. It's believed by many that Manning is healed from his torn plantar fascia, but the Broncos aren't going to humiliate the future Hall of Famer by dressing him and standing him on the sideline behind Osweiler. Trevor Siemian will back up Osweiler on Monday night. Osweiler's leash is getting shorter with zero second-half points in three-straight games, but the Broncos seem poised to sink or swim with him at the controls.
Wed, Dec 23, 2015 12:10:00 PM

Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said Monday he is "looking for more consistency" at the quarterback position.

For the second straight week, Kubiak has declined to announce his starter early in the week. Kubiak said he believes Brock Osweiler has played well in "spurts," but that apparently hasn't been enough for Kubiak to yet commit to Osweiler as the Broncos' going-forward starter. Kubiak's decision may ultimately hinge on Peyton Manning's health. Manning seemingly experienced a setback in his recovery from plantar fasciitis late last week.
