Peyton Manning practiced for the Denver Broncos Wednesday despite popping up on the injury report with an ankle injury, according to ProFootballTalk.
Even though Manning and the Broncos were off last week, it would appear that the injury has lingered long enough for the Broncos to note him on the injury report.
There could be some Bill Belichick-esque shenanigans going on in Denver, however. As PFT noted, “It’s unclear which ankle is injured, and the theory/informed speculation in league circles is that the ESPN report of Manning having two injured ankles was aimed at keeping opponents guessing as to which ankle is injured.”
Whatever the injury is, it’s not going to stop Peyton from taking on Philip Rivers and the Chargers this weekend. Rivers is one of 4 QBs in the NFL that Manning has a losing record to, and the Broncos need a win to keep pace with the undefeated Chiefs in the AFC West race.
