Peyton Manning took, passed concussion test during win

Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning didn’t have his best day of the season on Sunday, but it could have been a whole lot worse.

Manning took a concussion test from the team’s medical staff after taking a hard hit from Chiefs defensive lineman from Tyson Jackson while delivering a touchdown pass to tight end Jacob Tamme just before halftime. Manning’s head hit the ground hard on the play and that led to the test, which showed Manning didn’t have a concussion, as well as precautionary x-rays.

“I’m fine, everything checked out OK, ” Manning said, via Mike Klis of the Denver Post. “I took a hit there, but I was cleared.”

Manning was less accurate in the second half than he was during the first two quarters, completing 9-of-20 passes compared to 13-of-17 before the break, but he threw for more yards and a touchdown after halftime to help Denver improve to 8-3 on the season. Assuming no other symptoms crop up in the next few days, we’d expect Manning to be back under center when the Broncos host the Buccaneers next weekend.

    isn’t this the same guy who accidently admitted he purposely bombs the pre-concussion tests to set the bar so low that he can pass it even if he has a concussion?

    Something just doesn’t seem right about this From what I can see.

    Broncos need to stop dropping balls.

    Broncos need to stop dropping balls, and stop missing field goals.

    If the NFL is serious about this concussion issue, what they need to do is, any player that has to be tested to see if they can pass this RIDICULOUS test need to be finished for the game.

    Treat every head injury as if it were a concussion and the player needs to have an independent neurologist give them a real test.

    If they can pass the test by Wednesday, then they can play the following week. If they can’t pass the test by Wednesday, then they can’t take the test until the following week.

    I would say Peyton manning was less accurate in the second half, receivers dropped at lease seven of those. They dropped six straight and the ball was in their hands, maybe the sun was blinding them. Anyways, big win and now they can seal up a playoff spot with a win bs bucs next week at home.
