Everything was going smoothly for Peyton Manning late into Sunday's game against the Chargers. Then defensive end Corey Liuget hit him low. Liuget took Manning to the ground in the fourth quarter, corralling both of his ankles. Manning got up limping, then sat back down for a little bit. However, he didn't miss a play and finished the game. He was even on the field for a couple of kneel-downs at the end
Manning said after the game that he was "pretty sore" and will undergo an MRI on Monday to find out the extent of the damage.
How long can you hold your breath? That's what Broncos fans and the fantasy football world will be doing until the results of that MRI come back. Brock Osweiler is warming up in the bullpen just in case. We'll discuss his impact on Denver's offense if this story gets that far. Personally, I think Manning will be just fine for next week's showdown versus the Chiefs.
