Broncos, Chiefs Fans Wait For Peyton’s MRI

In a season where the football has bounced the Chiefs way, both literally and figuratively, they will watch the western horizon for news Monday on what could be the biggest break of their season to date.

While the Chiefs were making their way back to Kansas City from their week-long bye, the Denver Broncos were in San Diego, playing the Chargers and escaping with a 28-20 victory.

Late in the game, QB Peyton Manning took a hit on his lower right leg, from San Diego DL Corey Liuget. It came as he was throwing a pass and he stayed on the ground after the hit. Doctors and trainers came on the field to tend to him and when he got to his feet there was a noticeable hitch in his get-along.

After the game, Manning had little to say about the situation, other than his lower leg was “pretty sore” and that he’s going to have an MRI on Monday “and we’ll know more then.”

Manning has been having ankle problems in recent weeks, with injuries to both left and right ankles. He said that he was feeling pretty good coming out of the Broncos bye week.

The Broncos backup quarterback is second-year man Brock Osweiler, who has not started an NFL game. Sound familiar? Osweiler has played in 6 games completing 4 of 7 passes for 22 yards.

As far as Manning was concerned, he’ll answer the call next Sunday night against the Chiefs.

“I certainly plan on it, yeah,” Manning told the media. “I had (an MRI) a couple weeks ago; I took a couple hits today, so just kind of an update to see what it says. I’m hoping for no change.”

    When you look at the Broncos offense they just have too many weapons that can beat you. Even their running duo of Moreno and Ball are top notch. How does one team end up with so much talent???
