Report: MRI finds no new damage to Peyton Manning's ankle

DENVER - An MRI on the right ankle of Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning found no new damage to his right ankle, according to a report citing an anonymous team source.

Mike Klis, a reporter covering the Broncos for's partners at The Denver Post, tweeted he was told Manning's MRI showed an "aggravation of the right high ankle sprain," but "no new damage."

Klis also reported that his source was certain Manning would play Sunday against the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs.

Manning initially suffered the ankle injury last month in a game against Jacksonville, and it was aggravated the next game, Oct. 20, when he was blasted by Indianapolis Colts pass rusher Robert Mathis for a sack. Manning was blindsided again Sunday, this time by Chargers linebacker Tourek Williams, for a sack that induced a fumble.

Manning left San Diego's Qualcomm Stadium on Sunday noticeably limping after his team's 28-20 victory.
