Broncos not concerned about Peyton’s thigh injury


After Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning made an early exit to the locker room before halftime, the team ultimately announced that he was probable to return to Sunday’s win over the Chargers with a thigh injury.

Per a league source, the Broncos have no lingering concern about said thigh injury.

The team believes the thigh problem was related to Peyton’s illness, and that it won’t affect his preparation for next Monday’s game against the Bengals. His decision to head to the locker room early was aimed at getting the thigh worked on by the strength coach and trainer at halftime.

We’ll all officially know more about Manning’s thigh on Thursday, when the team’s first injury report in advance of next Monday’s game is released. Apparently, Manning won’t be listed with a thigh injury.
