Denver Broncos leading tackler Wesley Woodyard told Bill Williamson of ESPN that he will be back on the field for Sunday's game in Baltimore. "I'm playing," said Woodyard, who missed Thursday night's game in Oakland because of a sprained left ankle.  Woodyard said if the game would have been played on Sunday, he would have been able to play. "I definitely would have given it a go on Sunday. But quick turnaround, it was just the smart thing to do to stay off it and get some rest," Woodyard said. "Definitely a great decision. I got healthy; my teammates got a chance to go out there and play and compete, and that's the thing -- next man up, they stepped up and brought that victory home for us." Woodyard leads the team with 100 tackles in his first year as starting weakside linebacker.  The Broncos are preparing for a Ravens team whose offense may look familiar to quarterback Peyton Manning.  The Ravens fired offensive coordinator Cam Cameron this week and replaced him with Jim Caldwell, who was the Indianapolis Colts head coach from 2009-11 and Manning's position coach from 2002-08. Woodyard said Manning will definitely be giving the Broncos defense some pointers. "Absolutely. He'll give us some insight about what goes on. He's got a big job already to get the offense taken care of," Woodyard said. "But he's definitely the guy that always spreads wisdom on everything that he sees and knows."
