Peyton Manning Injury Watch: Manning to have MRI on “Lower Body”

As if next Sunday night’s Chiefs-Broncos game didn’t need even more drama, Peyton Manning took it to yet another level. The Broncos quarterback announced that he will have an MRI on his “lower body” after taking a shot at the end of Sunday’s game against San Diego. He entered the bye last week playing on two sprained ankles.

Here’s a clip from the Denver Post’s story:

“Pretty sore,” Manning said Sunday night. “They kind of got me twice in that lower area. I felt better coming into the game after the bye week, but pretty sore. I’ll get an MRI tomorrow, so I’ll know a little more then.”

Manning initially suffered the ankle injury last month in a game against Jacksonville, and it was aggravated the next game, Oct. 20, when he was blasted by Indianapolis Colts pass rusher Robert Mathis for a sack.

Kansas City has already faced four backup quarterbacks this season in games against Tennessee, Houston Cleveland, and Buffalo. While it is highly Kansas City will see Manning next Sunday, there does appear to be a chance backup Brock Osweiler cold see some time if KC gets enough hits in on Manning.

One thing is for certain: Mobility is going to be an issue for Manning, which plays into the Chiefs hands.

    This is actually bad news. If Peyton is out, then we have to gameplan for a QB we have no game tape on. Also, from a purely objective standpoint, I don’t want to see any players get hurt, and hope Manning is ok and is able to finish out this season strong.

    That all being said, it would be a lot less satisfying to see Houston smash Brock Osweiler, which sounds like a german porn name, into the ground. We need Peyton Manning out there because if he’s not it will just de-legitimize our victory.

    Get better Manning!

      I don’t care if they talk Brett Favre into coming back for a game… They beat the Broncos and it’s a win period. Go Chiefs!
