Denver Broncos - PlayerWatch

QB Peyton Manning increased his workload again on Friday and was officially listed as probable for Sunday night's AFC West showdown with the Kansas City Chiefs.

TE Joel Dreessen returned to full practice Friday and is listed as probable. Dreessen has had two knee surgeries in the last six months.

S Duke Ihenacho practiced fully Friday and is expected to play against Kansas City. He missed the Chargers game because of an ankle injury suffered against Washington in Week 8.

RT Orlando Franklin practiced all week and is expected to play Sunday. The ankle that he sprained in Week 6 remains problematic; he's allowed sacks in consecutive games since sitting out the Week 7 loss at Indianapolis.

LB Nate Irving was listed as questionable Friday. A shoulder MRI examination Monday revealed no structural damage. He is considered day-to-day.

CB Champ Bailey did something beyond working out with a team trainer. He practiced with the team this week for the first time since re-aggravating the sprained foot that he suffered in the preseason.
