Kubiak: Osweiler's eye better, Manning has good week

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) Broncos coach Gary Kubiak says Brock Osweiler's eye infection has largely cleared up and Peyton Manning had a good week of work.

Osweiler will make his sixth consecutive start Monday night when the Broncos (10-4) host the Bengals (11-3). Manning will be inactive again. He hasn't played since tearing the plantar fascia in his left foot Nov. 15.

After experiencing a setback last week, Manning returned to throwing on his own indoors this week.

Kubiak watched video of Manning's workouts, but he set off a firestorm Thursday when he offhandedly mentioned he'd witness Manning's ''big workout on Saturday.''

Truth is, it wasn't as pivotal as many media outlets portrayed it.

Kubiak says: ''I need to shut up. It was a workout.''
