Peyton Manning will get MRI on injured ankle

After yesterday’s game, Peyton Manning left Qualcomm Stadium noticeably limping from a right ankle sprain that was aggravated during a 28-20 victory against the Chargers.

Pay per head services were told that Manning will have a magnetic resonance imaging exam on the ankle today.

“I’m pretty sore. They kind of got me twice in that lower area… get an MRI tomorrow and will know more then,” Manning said.

Manning doesn’t plan on missing next week’s crucial game against the undefeated Chiefs, “I certainly plan on it,” he added.

It doesn’t sound too serious, but Broncos fans are paying close attention.

After throwing for 330 yards with four touchdowns yesterday, Manning has now completed 71 percent of his passes for an unbelievable 3,249 yards, 33 touchdowns and six interceptions through nine games.

Manning is currently on pace (58) to break Tom Brady’s single season passing touchdown record of 50 and he is the leading league MVP candidate, so he is essential to Denver’s success this season.

Second-year quarterback Brock Osweiler, who has attempted seven career NFL passes, would start if Manning is sidelined.
