Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning was seen limping after being hit low by Chargers defensive lineman Corey Liuget late in Sunday’s win at San Diego, but he stayed in the game.
Manning appeared to be hit in the right leg above the knee on a pass completion to Demaryius Thomas in the final two minutes of the game. Backup Brock Osweiler was preparing to enter the contest, but the Broncos called timeout, and Manning did not miss a snap.
Manning has been listed on the injury report with an ankle ailment before each of Denver’s last two games.
Manning completed 25-of-36 passes for 330 yards and four TDs in Denver’s 28-20 victory.
