Manning shines in first padded practice

Broncos’ rebuilt QB draws rave reviews after aerial show
Manning watch

ENGLEWOOD – A look at Peyton Manning’s day at Denver Broncos training camp:
PEYTON’S PLACE: Manning was sharp in his first full practice in pads since playing in the Pro Bowl after the 2010 season, his last appearance in an Indianapolis Colts helmet.
HOW’D HE DO?: Manning and wide receiver Eric Decker put on quite an aerial show. One time, Decker found the slightest separation from perennial Pro Bowl cornerback Champ Bailey, and Manning fit the pass right into a tight window, drawing gasps from the boisterous Broncos’ crowd. He had other jaw-dropping throws, including a deep touchdown toss to Demaryius Thomas over the middle and a low pass that a sliding Matt Willis hauled in.
TALKING MANNING: “To me, he looks – and I said this when I was working out with him five months ago – he looks great. So, for us now, it’s kind of a nonissue of how Peyton’s feeling, how he’s doing. That’s kind of three months ago. Now he’s fine. There’s nothing wrong with him,” wide receiver Brandon Stokley said.
