Peyton Manning Says He Will Undergo MRI on Monday, Remains Confident He’ll Play Against Chiefs in Week 11

Peyton Manning finished out the fourth quarter against the Chargers on Sunday in obvious pain, and the Broncos quarterback will get an MRI on Monday to determine the severity of his injury.

Late in the final period of Denver’s win over San Diego, Manning took a hit to his right knee. He was seen limping after the play and for the remainder of the game. Chargers defensive end Corey Liuget laid the big hit on Manning, knocking him around on a pass play during the final two minutes of regulation.

Despite the Broncos medical staff coming out to check on the quarterback and backup Brock Osweiler warming up on the sidelines, the signal caller stayed in the game, but after the win he told reporters that he was “pretty sore” and would get the injury checked out. The knee injury comes on top of the two sprained ankles that the 37-year-old has been playing on, but Manning remained confident that he doesn’t intend to miss any time — especially with the Chiefs, the AFC West leaders, coming to town next weekend.

Manning finished the day completing 25 of 36 passes for 340 yards and four touchdowns en route to a 28-20 victory over Denver’s division foe.
