Denver quarterback Peyton Manning sat out Wednesday's practice as the Broncos prepared for Sunday night's game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Manning suffered an ankle sprain in the Broncos' win over the San Diego Chargers on Sunday when he was hit by defensive end Corey Liuget. An MRI test on Monday revealed no other significant damage in the ankle.
The 37-year-old veteran has been bothered by sore ankles since the Broncos' loss to the Indianapolis Colts last month.
Broncos interim coach Jack Del Rio said earlier this week that Manning would play Sunday against the unbeaten Chiefs in an AFC West showdown.
In nine games this season, Manning has completed 262 of 369 passes (71 percent) for 3,249 yards and 33 touchdowns with six interceptions.
