Peyton Manning has cast removed, still in walking boot

Peyton Manning's cast is off.

Denver Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said Wednesday that the cast came off, but the quarterback is still in a boot as he recovers from a plantar fascia injury.

The cast removal means Manning can now start rehabbing, but the quarterback said on Wednesday that he is week-to-week.

"I'd love for (the foot) to be healthy yesterday," Manning said, per the team's official Twitter feed. "(I'm) trying to get healthy before I come back."

Kubiak stuck to his consistent stance that the team will wait until Manning is fully healed to make any decisions about the future of the quarterback position in Denver. 

"We're totally committed to getting (Manning) back. ... Nothing has changed," he said, via the team's official Twitter feed.

Brock Osweiler's play in his first two starts -- winning in Chicago and beating the previously undefeated Patriots -- ensures the Broncos will not rush back Manning, if he returns at all.
