Peyton Manning won't play Week 11

USA Today - [Full Article]

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning will not play Sunday against the Chicago Bears, head coach Gary Kubiak announced Monday.

Kubiak informed the team Monday afternoon that Brock Osweiler will start this week.

“All of our full attention is going to be to getting Peyton back and healthy,” Kubiak said. "That decision has been made. I know that's the best decision for him, to get him back and healthy, and we need to know where we're heading this week with Brock and get our football team ready to play Chicago.”

Manning, 39, has never missed a game in the middle of a season because of injury. He was inactive the entire 2011 season while recovering from four neck surgeries while with the Indianapolis Colts.

Manning will not practice this week, and he will be inactive on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: 

The team has not made any determinations about Manning’s status beyond Week 11, the story said. Manning is currently dealing with an issue to the plantar fascia in his foot. Kubiak said Manning was extremely sore after the Broncos game against the Colts, and Manning was pulled from Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs in the third quarter after throwing his fourth interception. Rookie Trevor Siemian will back up Osweiler on Sunday.
