ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- The Broncos say an MRI has determined that a hit Sunday caused no further damage to Peyton Manning's tender right ankle.

Interim coach Jack Del Rio said the Broncos have sent replays to the league offices of Corey Liuget's dive at Manning's ankles in the closing minutes of Denver's 28-20 win over San Diego.

Manning stayed down after Liuget dove at him following a completed pass that iced the game with 1:44 left. Manning limped through the rest of the game and in the locker room afterward.

An MRI on Monday showed no further damage to the ankle, which was heavily taped throughout the Chargers game.

Del Rio said Manning would play next Sunday in Denver's AFC West showdown against Kansas City. The quarterback's practice schedule will be determined later in the week.
