Report: Broncos QB Peyton Manning has partially torn ligament in foot
Monday November 16th, 2015

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning has a partially torn plantar fascia ligament in his left foot, reports ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Manning was listed as probable to play before Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs with a rib cage injury in addition to the plantar fasciitis he had been dealing with all week, which Schefter reports worsened after the game.

Manning broke the record for most passing yards of all-time during Sunday’s 29–13 loss to the Chiefs before he was benched in the second half and replaced by Brock Osweiler. Manning threw four interceptions and completed just five of 20 passes for 35 yards against Kansas City.

After the game, head coach Gary Kubiak said that he should not have started Manning in light of his various injuries, but stressed that he will remain the starter as long as his health allows.

The Broncos (7–2) play the Chicago Bears (4–5) on the road in Week 11.
