The Broncosannounced Tuesday that Osweiler will start Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. In addition, the team said Peyton Manning is expected to practice Wednesday for the first time since he was benched against the Chiefs last month after suffering a torn plantar fascia in his left foot.
Although Osweiler is coming off his first loss as a starter, he was hardly the primary culprit in a game which featured no rushing attack, a bevy of dropped passes and Khalil Mack's five sacks versus an overwhelmed offensive line.
There's no reason for Kubiak to anoint a starter for the remainder of the season. This is a fluid situation, allowing him to play it week-to-week.
