Report: Manning has two ankle sprains

The SportsXchange

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning has two ankle sprains, according to ESPN.

However, the injuries will not prevent the four-time MVP from playing Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins as he will reportedly rely on a painkiller.

Manning was injured during the Broncos' win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Oct. 13. One of the injuries is a high ankle sprain.

One sprain occurred on the Broncos' first offensive play of the game and the other later in the game when Manning was hit low by Jacksonville's Jason Babin.

Manning aggravated the high ankle sprain during last Sunday's loss to the Indianapolis Colts, when he was sacked by former teammate Robert Mathis.

Sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter that scans of the injuries were sent to foot and ankle specialist Dr. Robert Anderson, who confirmed the high ankle sprain but determined that the injury was not severe.

Manning missed practice Wednesday but returned Thursday.

The Broncos have a bye next week.
