Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning (ankle) did not practice with the team on Wednesday, according to a report by Mike Klis of the Denver Post. Manning is expected to return to practice later in the week.
Fantasy Impact: Manning was injured after he took a low shot from San Diego Chargers defensive end Corey Liuget late in the game last week. He did finish the game and is not expected to miss any action going forward.
There's no doubt the future Hall of Famer is having one of the best seasons of his career, and even if he were only at 50 percent, he'd still be a must-start in most fantasy leagues.
Despite being injured, it would be a huge shock if Manning didn't play against the Kansas City Chiefs in week 12, especially considering the game is at Arrowhead Stadium against an undefeated Chiefs team. It's a good opportunity for the Broncos to establish themselves as the true leaders of the AFC West.
No one in their right mind would question that the Chiefs have a good defense, but it goes without saying that Manning is a guaranteed top producer this week, as he has been all year long.
