Peyton Manning was manhandled by the Colts in Week 7, a rare occurrence for the Broncos quarterback this season. He ended up missing one practice this week with a sprained ankle, but a teammate told CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora that when Manning returned to practice he was throwing "absolute darts." It's an impressive development given that Manning had not one but two sprained ankles, including a high ankle sprain that was aggravated when Robert Mathis' sacked Manning for the second time last Sunday. This is according to a report from ESPN's Chris Mortensen, who adds that Manning will use a pain killer in this Sunday's game against the Redskins. Meanwhile, KCNC's Tom Helmer said Sunday morning that Manning's "100 percent." "It was a minor ankle injury. He's fine, he's 100 percent," Helmer told CBS Sports Network's The Other Pregame Show. "When you talked to players on Thursday about how Manning's ankle responded (to treatment) when he returned to practice, they looked at you almost like you were nuts. It wasn't that big a deal.
