Broncos | Peyton Manning sore
Mon, 28 Oct 2013 09:34:02 -0700
Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (ankles) said he was sore following the team's Week 8 win over the Washington Redskins, but that he is alright. "I'm going to go down on the injury report, starting now, under 'body,' just keep me there, that's what I'm going under," Manning said. "I actually felt pretty good out there, felt like I was moving around, felt like I was able to move in the pocket a little bit and see some things and felt good out there. The bye week is coming at a good time for a lot of people physically, me as well." He finished with 354 yards passing, four touchdowns and three interceptions in the game.
Denver's bye week couldn't come at a better time for Manning, who'll be able to rest his sore ankles. There is some worry that the offensive line is beat up and won't be able to protect Manning in the second half of the season. For fantasy purposes, he may have already hit his peak in the first half of the season, but he should continue to put up top-end QB1 numbers on a weekly basis.
