Those who have wondered what it will look like when Peyton Manning runs an offense constructed by Gary Kubiak and his coaching staff will get their first chance to see it Saturday night (8 ET) in Houston.
Manning was held out of the preseason opener in Seattle this past Friday night, but Kubiak said following Tuesday's practice Manning will get his first action of the preseason when the Denver Broncos face the Texans in NRG Stadium.
"He's going to play. ...I'll say he's going to play quite a bit," Kubiak said. "I'd like our 1s to play quite a bit. Is that a quarter? A quarter and a half? Is that a half? I don't know, I'll see how the game goes, but I want them to get a bunch of snaps under their belt. We have some guys that have not been working together who need to work together. ...Expect him to play quite a bit."
