11/26/15TEOwen DanielsKneeQUESTIONABLEDaniels (knee) was limited at practice Wednesday.

With no reported setbacks in Week 11, we suspect that Daniels' limitations Wednesday were maintenance-related, with a probable designation for Sunday night's game against the Patriots a likely outcome Friday.

11/26/15TEVirgil GreenFingerPROBABLEGreen was targeted once in Sunday's win over Chicago, recording a nine-yard reception.

Following a three-catch performance in Week 8, Green has been targeted just once in each of the past three contests. In Brock Osweiler's first game under center, head coach Gary Kubiak implemented his multi-tight end scheme to full effect, with 12 of 27 passes directed at tight ends. Eleven of those targets, however, went to Owen Daniels and Vernon Davis. Green saw the field just 26 times as compared to Daniels, 59, and Davis, 50, and is unlikely to benefit much from Denver's adjusted offense.

11/26/15QBPeyton ManningFootQUESTIONABLENFL Network's Ian Rapoport suggested Thursday that Manning (foot) is at least three weeks away from playing again.

When explaining the basis of the estimate, Rapoport noted Thursday that Manning is "going to be in a cast for up to 10 days, then he's got another week of rehab, and then he's got to try to get on the field." Based on that, Rapoport suggests that "the date to circle on your calendar is Dec. 20 against the Steelers. That's the most realistic date that Manning could be back, but no one has guaranteed to me that he'll definitely be back on the field, especially if Brock Osweiler is playing well." In any case, the Broncos have already acknowledged that Manning -- who continues to recover from a plantar fascia tear -- is expected to miss at least the next two games, with Osweiler slated to fill in for him at QB in the meantime.

11/26/15WREmmanuel SandersAnkle, fingerQUESTIONABLESanders (ankle/finger) practiced for the second straight day Thursday, the Denver Post reports.

Sanders missed this past Sunday's win over the Bears with a left high ankle sprain, but the report relays that wideout "ran well both days in practice this week," which bodes well for his chances of suiting up Sunday night against the Patriots.

11/26/15DEAntonio SmithHipPROBABLEBroncos defensive end Antonio Smith is being investigated for child abuse, TMZ reported early Thursday morning. 
11/26/15DEVance WalkerShoulderQUESTIONABLEDefensive tackle Vance Walker has signed a two-year contract worth $5 million with the Broncos, according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport.
11/26/15LBDeMarcus WareBackQUESTIONABLEWare (back) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

More on Ware's status Friday, but at this stage he looks iffy for Sunday night's game against the Patriots.
