The Denver Broncos got a crucial road-win on Sunday against the San Diego Chargers on the strength of four passing touchdowns by Peyton Manning, who continues to look like a runaway-favorite for the NFL MVP award.
But late in the game, Manning dropped back to pass and was hit in the right knee on a pass in the final minutes of the game. He was down on the ground for about 15 seconds before gingerly getting up and walking off the field during a timeout. He would come back in and finish the game.
Manning said after the game his knee was sore and he’ll undergo an MRI on Monday.
