Denver Broncos could be without their superstar for clash with Kansas City.
The Denver Broncos will be nervously waiting on the results of scans from Peyton Manning after the superstar quarterback was hit several times hard in the lower-leg area against the St Louis Rams.
Manning ill undergo an MRI on Monday morning to ascertain any damage sustained from the rugged Rams’ defence.
Despite the game seemingly being the Broncos to lose, Manning stayed in the game late in the fourth quarter where he was hit low by Chargers defensive end Corey Liuget with 1:44 to play.
Manning was seen flexing his right leg several times during the game and had a limp going back to the lockeroom.
However, the veteran remained upbeat that it would not be too serious and hoped it would be a complaint he would be able to shake off in the short-term.
“I’m pretty sore,” Manning said following the 28-20 victory. “They got me twice in that lower area. I felt better coming into the game after the bye week, but I’m pretty sore.”
“Lower body, [I] feel like the injury report is very revealing to the opponent as well as the folks in Vegas, so I guess somewhere in that lower body.”
The Broncos will face the NFL’s sack leaders – the Kansas City Chiefs – next Sunday night in Denver. When asked if he would play against the Chiefs, Manning paused slightly before saying, “I definitely plan on it.”
