In the wake of the Broncos' humiliating loss to the Chiefs, Coach Gary Kubiak has announced that backup quarterback Brock Oweiler will start against the Chicago Bears this Sunday for future Hall of Famer Peyton Manning, who's said to be suffering from a rib-cage injury and a partial tear of the plantar fascia in his left foot.
