On Monday morning, ESPN reported Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning suffered a torn plantar fascia on his left foot.
Broncos players said they see him have difficulty walking on his left foot. Manning has been battling the injury for weeks and aggravated it against the Indianapolis Colts. Most of the time a partial tear is worst than a complete tear as it can come and go. Manning felt well into warmups, but resulted in an awful game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Oh, I can’t … I don’t know,” Manning said with a sigh according to ESPN. I can’t say that. I guess that’s an observation. I just didn’t — I thought I felt good enough to play, that’s what I thought. Maybe that was the wrong — maybe that was a false feeling by me or whatever that was. … I was honest with them with how I felt, thought I was good enough to play. Maybe looking back that was the wrong — I had the wrong indication by me. And by going out there trying to help the team, I ended up hurting the team. I’m disappointed about that.
It’s not looking good for one of the greatest quarterbacks to play this game. Manning is dealing with numerous injuries including the ribs and shoulder. He finished the game with four interceptions on five completed passes. The end is near for him, but can he finish the season with all of these injuries?
