Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is expected to be fine after taking a hit to the leg on Sunday. But that doesn’t mean the Broncos are happy about that hit.
Manning expressed his displeasure to the officials immediately following the hit, and Denver interim head coach Jack Del Rio confirmed today that the Broncos have asked the NFL to review the low hit committed by Chargers defensive lineman Corey Liuget.
However, the Broncos may not be happy with the results of that review: Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports that a preliminary review of Liuget’s hit indicates that it was within the rules.
Liuget was not flagged for the hit, which came on Manning’s last pass of the game, while the Broncos were nursing a 28-20 lead with less than two minutes to play.
