ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning will play Sunday’s game against the Washington Redskins with two ankle sprains, according to ESPN.
Manning suffered the two injuries on Oct. 13, in the Broncos 35-19 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, sources tell ESPN.
Manning’s first ankle sprain was on the opening offensive possession for the Broncos. The second, a high ankle sprain, was when Manning was hit low by Jaguars’ Jason Babin, according to ESPN.
Manning’s high ankle sprain was aggravated in last Sunday’s lost to the Indianapolis Colts when the Broncos quarterback was sacked by Colts Robert Mathis for the second time.
The Broncos held Manning out of practice on Wednesday, but returned the following day.
After practice on Wednesday, Broncos head coach John Fox said that Manning’s ankle was “just sore, and we wanted to make sure that it was healed up.”
After the Broncos host the Redskins on Sunday, they will have a week off as they enter their bye week.
