Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning was back on the practice field Thursday as the team prepares for Sunday night's AFC West showdown with the Kansas City Chiefs.
Manning, who missed Wednesday's practice, has been dealing with a sore ankle.
Manning suffered an ankle sprain in the Broncos' win over the San Diego Chargers on Sunday when he was hit by defensive end Corey Liuget. An MRI test on Monday revealed no other significant damage in the ankle.
The 37-year-old veteran has been bothered by sore ankles since the Broncos' loss to the Indianapolis Colts last month.
Broncos interim coach Jack Del Rio said earlier this week that Manning would play Sunday against the unbeaten Chiefs.
In nine games this season, Manning has completed 262 of 369 passes (71 percent) for 3,249 yards and 33 touchdowns with six interceptions.
