Peyton Manning injury update news might worry fantasy football owners. A Manning injury has the Denver Broncos holding him out of practice with worries that it could be worse than originally thought. According to a report from Wednesday (Oct. 23), the quarterback was held out of practice due to a minor ankle injury that took place against the Indianapolis Colts. It is the same malady that he suffered against the New York Jets earlier in the season.
Heading into Week 8 of the NFL season, he has one of the best projections that fantasy football has seen this year. Going up against the Washington Redskins, he is projected to bring in 33 or more points for the game. That is an extremely high number and something owners don't want to miss out on because of an ankle problem. At this point, there isn't an indication that the Broncos would really bench him, but it's certainly a situation to pay very close attention to over the next few days.
This Peyton Manning injury is something that the Denver Broncos are taking very seriously, but at his age, getting a day off from practice isn't too big of a deal on its own. It's a safe bet that every sports network is going to be watching him very closely over the next few days and his status for Sunday's game (Oct. 27) will likely get updated very soon. For now, he looks ready to lead the Denver Broncos against the Redskins, but it's possible the team could look to call more running plays.
