Ankle keeps Peyton Manning out of practice

Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning was sacked four times by the Colts on Sunday night and Robert Mathis had one for a safety that appeared to be a particularly hard blow.

After that hit, Manning threw some wobbly passes that he downplayed when speaking to the media following the loss. It was hard not to think about the Mathis hit and the other ones that Manning took on Sunday night when word came out of Denver that Manning wasn’t practicing on Wednesday during the portion of the session open to the media.

Ed Werder of ESPN reported Manning wore a helmet and no pads and wasn’t throwing while the rest of the Broncos were going through the start of their work for the day, but the reason given for his day off doesn’t have to do with his arm or neck. Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports that Manning is being held out of practice to get treatment on his ankle. An injured ankle could also affect Manning’s throws, of course, but it’s less alarming as other body parts.

Klis adds that the team expects Manning to practice on Thursday. Unless that doesn’t happen, there wouldn’t seem to be much reason to worry that Manning will miss this week’s game against the Redskins.

Manning was one of many Broncos regulars to miss practice on Wednesday. Klis reports wide receiver Eric Decker, guard Chris Kuper, wide receiver Wes Welker, tackle Orlando Franklin, linebacker Shaun Phillips, cornerback Champ Bailey and tight end Joel Dreessen were also on the sideline. Bailey is expected to miss Week Eight while Franklin missed last weekend’s game with an ankle injury.

    No need to worry. The Redskins defense probably can’t stop wobbly passes either.

    RGIII is the best QB Pierre Garcon has played alongside of. #WhatsstoppingaChiefsRedskinsSuperbowl

    I wonder if Peyton’s arm was also injured by Robert Mathis’ strip sack which was followed by all those wobbly passes. I’m sure the Bronco’s would prefer to have other teams think it’s just an ankle.

    Point 2: whenever a QB is mentioned in these pages, why is it that a very defensive “logicalvoicesays” always tries to interject that RGIII is the best QB EVER. Pretty pitiful.

    Broncos Defense is ranked dead last…….Think about that before you talk about another teams D

    And so it begins…

    why would the team even practice without peyton on the field?

  9. jbaxt says: Oct 23, 2013 2:47 PM

    Throw those passes against a decent secondary and their offense won’t need to score.

    BREAKING: Your ankle doesn’t keep you from throwing. It’s common knowledge that Peyton has been on a pitch count, due to his neck and his age.

    His passes looked even worse than ever Sunday. I think he has an arm problem or something other than an ankle. Did anyone detect a limp at the game?

    Something is wrong affecting his throwing, be it arm, neck or something else.

    What’s stopping from the Redskins getting a top 10 draft pick?

    Their record should get them one, except for the fact they gave 3 of their next first round picks for an injury prone, overrated QB

    The Chiefs have not won a playoff game since 1993.

    Now that would be the ultimate slap in the face to everyone who looking for a name change.

    LOL

    qdog actually has a point. News here says he has a “dead arm” thing like a pitcher in baseball. I’m not a Dr. or pretending to be one, it’s just what beat writers are saying. Many people saw his passes Sunday night and they were not sharp.

    Over on MHR they are saying the ankle injury happened playing the Jags…..who knows

    Colts whooped the Donkeys azzes!! So wonderful to see this arrogant team get their butts kicked…and yes Donkey fan, it was a butt-kicking. Don’t give me your well if Hillman wouldn’t have fumbled and if this would have happened and if the refs…blah, blah, blah. You got whooped!

    Something is rotten in Indy and it comes from the very top down–poor Pagano caught up in booze, inappropriate behavior and God knows what else. You have a fat ass GM (who is also a cheapskate); a whiner in 87 ( who got his on Sunday night, with no help from anyone else).
    We will see how it all shakes out….your ass whippen is already scheduled for you by the NFL.

  18. sportsfan18 says: Oct 23, 2013 3:21 PM

    It was a butt-kicking you say?

    The Colts won by 6 points, less than a TD with the extra point.

    Geez, what do you call it when a team loses by say 8 or 9 points?

    And what did you call it when the Chargers beat the Colts by TEN since a 6 point loss is a butt-kicking?

    I always get a good laugh reading logicalvoicesays comments.

    ——————————————————-LOL, sticks and stones all else fails make sheet up.
    The Colts may very well get a “ass whippen” along the way but it sure wasn’t by the donkeys.
    You just show how much class you and your team have by even bringing up Reggie’s injury like you did, that’s ok and you can say you lost only by 6 points but the Colts man handled the donkeys all game.
    Now go and try and beat KC if you can.

    ___________________________________

    Here’s the problem first you must get your facts straight they did not give up 3 of their next first round picks…
    1. 2012 they swapped pick 6 for pick 2 still = a 1st round pick just sooner.
    2. They did give a 1st in 2013 and 2014 this = 2 total.
    3. When will the dumb ones figure out if you start the day with a 1st round pick and end it with a 1st round pick you didn’t lose anything you just changed positions quit calculating that as a pick lost.

    And for all you other haters you need to get off the Skins jock…write them off if you want but until week 16 when all regular seasons games have been played let’s see where everything is then and talk about it then…

    Hopefully, the Chiefs Defense will take the Peyton Manning back behind the barn, and pull the trigger on his career…..

  23. dirtydrynn27 says: Oct 23, 2013 3:58 PM

    Hendawg21,they will never ever get it!!!! Fact is RGIII is back to his normal self,Dont believe it,just watch!!!!!

  24. hendawg21 says: Oct 23, 2013 3:59 PM

    I’ve listen to all this Peyton love and what he was doing as far as lighting up the NFL with TD’s etc., only to find out that the Broncos have only played 2 teams with winning records and have a played teams with a combined record of 18-30 I mean come on the Giants, Jax, Oak, Philly, I mean really how tough could that run possibly be.

  25. baddegg says: Oct 23, 2013 4:42 PM

    Message here is that the Redskins need to dial up the blitz early and often and try to lay the hits on Peyton.

    I know, I know….if he picks up the blitz then he’ll burn you deep against your terrible secondary. True, but if you sit back in zone, with no pressure up front, he’ll pick you apart that way as well.

    I would rather go down swinging and hoping to get him rattled into some picks or mistakes and at least have a 5% chance of winning rather than sitting back playing it safe and having a .1% chance…
