Justin Edmonds/Getty Images(ENGLEWOOD, Colo.) — Peyton Manning will suit up against the Chiefs after aggravating a previous injury to his right ankle in the win against the Chargers on Sunday.

Interim head coach Jack Del Rio said Manning would be limited in practice this week, but will “definitely” will play in Sunday night’s game against Kansas City.

“We did get good news that there was nothing additional, good results coming back,” Del Rio said.  “[Manning] will definitely play this week. So that’s good news”

Del Rio laid out Manning’s schedule for the rest of the week.

“He’ll get an occasional day off here and there,” Del Rio said.  “We’ll decide when that makes sense or not … we’ll manage that as we get closer to Wednesday, Thursday. He’ll definitely play this week. He’s ready to roll, so that’s definitely good news.”

Manning said that he was “pretty sore” and the injury occurred during the final minutes of the game against the Chargers after the game.

“Lower body,” he said. “[I] feel like the injury report is very revealing to the opponent as well as the folks in Vegas, so I guess somewhere in that lower body.”
