Late in the fourth quarter of the Broncos win vs. the Chargers on Sunday, quarterback Peyton Manning got hit around the knees, and for the rest of the game, an annoyed-looking Manning limped around the field to run out the clock.

He finished the game, but after the 28-20 victory, he told reporters that he would undergo an MRI on Monday.

Obviously, that's not great news, especially with Denver facing off against AFC West division leader Kansas City next week.

But Manning also said this when asked if he thought he'd play in Week 11: "I certainly plan on it."

And if you'd forgotten how effective the somewhat-slumping Broncos offense can be, Manning completed 25 of 36 passes for 340 yards and four touchdowns to beat San Diego.
