John Elway denied a report from Ian Rapoport that Peyton Manning doesn't want to serve as the Denver Broncos' backup quarterback when he's healthy enough to play.

"Peyton has never told Gary (Kubiak) or myself that he doesn't want to be the backup," wrote Elway. "Any report or rumor that suggests otherwise is incorrect!!"

The Broncos have been starting Brock Osweiler while Manning has been injured.
