Peyton Manning made an absolutely jaw-dropping play during Denver Broncos practice Saturday. Unfortunately for Manning, the gasps probably weren’t for the best reasons.
The 39-year-old quarterback often is criticized for his lack of mobility, and it was much of the same when Manning decided to run the ball for a first down during one of the early drills.
Coaches, teammates and even the referee looked on in awe as the former NFL MVP ran down the field.

Did they just see a ghost?
It’s definitely a rarity to see Manning carrying the ball instead of passing it. Even head coach Gary Kubiak had a laugh about the play during a post-practice interview.
“(Offensive coordinator Rick Dennison) had him on the move like a young man today,” Kubiak said, per the Denver Post’s Nicki Jhabvala. “We tried to work him good today.”
