Broncos' Manning no longer sick, but limited in practice

BY foxsports • December 18, 2014

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Peyton Manning is over his illness but not his injury.

Denver's quarterback was limited Thursday when the Broncos reconvened for their first practice since their 22-10 win at San Diego on Sunday. Manning fought through the flu in that game and strained his right thigh in the first half, which he blamed on dehydration.

Manning participated in the walkthrough but retreated to the Broncos' facility after the team stretch.

Manning didn't appear in any discomfort afterward. He had his coloring back in his face and even jokingly referenced Bill Belichick three times when he answered reporters' questions with a ''We're onto Cincinnati'' mantra.

That's something the Patriots coach did five times a day after their 41-14 drubbing at Kansas City on Sept. 29.
