When Denver-area reporters first noticed that Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning wasn't practicing Wednesday, the news set off waves of Twitter-induced panic across the entire NFL-centric internet. There was speculation that the hit put on Manning by Indianapolis' Robert Mathis last Sunday might have affected his arm strength afterward and that perhaps those symptoms bled into this week.

But instead, the Denver Post's Jeff Legwold made it all better with the follow tweet.

So, there you go. The arm is still OK. It's just a minor ankle injury that should be all better by Thursday. Nothing to see here and all that.

Unless, that is, you're into conspiracy theories ...
