Peyton Manning MRI shows no new damage, will play Sunday, report says


(Gregory Bull / AP)

Peyton Manning may have been hobbled Sunday afternoon, but an MRI of his right ankle showed no “new significant damage,” the Denver Post reported.

Manning, a source told Broncos beat writer Mike Klis, “absolutely will play Sunday.” Manning, who initially hurt his ankle in a game against Jacksonville and aggravated it against Indianapolis, said Sunday that “I certainly plan on” playing in the Broncos’ game Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs. According to Klis, the MRI showed only an aggravation of the sprain.

Manning was sacked by Corey Liuget of the San Diego Chargers late in the Broncos’ 28-20 victory and said only that he had a “lower-body” injury. “I’m pretty sore,” Manning said. “They kind of got me twice in that lower area.”
