Osweiler (foot) was a full participant at Friday's practice.
Osweiler was added to Thursday's injury report and was on it again Friday, but has been a full participant both days and is expected to start Monday night in Denver.
Osweiler is expected to play Week 7 against the Broncos on Monday night, but the foot is something worth monitoring leading up to the game.
Osweiler was well on his way to a second straight disastrous performance, but Lamar Miller's huge rushing effort kept the team within striking distance, down by 14 points when they got the ball back with seven minutes remaining in the game. Osweiler completed 11 of his final 13 pass attempts in regulation, leading touchdown drives of 75 and 53 yards to improbably force overtime. After the Houston defense got a quick stop, Osweiler found Jaelen Strong for a 36-yard gain to set up the game-winning chip shot for Nick Novak. While Sunday's finish was impressive, Osweiler has still struggled on the whole this season, completing just 59 percent of his passes and throwing eight interceptions in six games. He could be in for a rough Week 7, heading back to Denver to face his former team.
Osweiler was atrocious in the first half, completing just seven of 20 passes for 54 yards. He managed to improve his numbers slightly with the Vikings playing a more conservative defense to nurse a big lead in the second half, but was still stifled by a unit that has already had similar success against much more decorated signal callers this season. On the bright side, Osweiler's lone touchdown went to previously-slumping top receiver DeAndre Hopkins. Reestablishing a rapport with Hopkins will be key to the former Broncos quarterback's success down the road.
