AROUND THE WEB:
• The Broncos won their first game without coach John Fox, who is recovering from heart surgery, but it ended with a scare.
Peyton Manning re-injured his right ankle while being hit by Corey Liuget in the closing minutes of Sunday’s 28-20 victory over the Chargers in San Diego. Although he remained in the game, Manning limped out of the stadium and said he would have tests to determine the extent of the injury.
“Pretty sore,” Manning said of the ankle, which has been a source of trouble for him for a month. “They kind of got me twice in that lower area. I felt better coming into the game after the bye week, but pretty sore. I’ll get an MRI [Monday], so I’ll know a little more then.”
Manning, who threw for 330 yards and four touchdowns with no interceptions, originally injured the ankle last month and aggravated it the following week. He said he’s likely to suit up for Sunday night’s matchup with the undefeated Chiefs.
“I certainly plan on it, yeah,” he said. “I had [an MRI] a couple of weeks ago. I took a couple of hits today, so just kind of an update to see what it says. I’m hoping for no change.”
• A Chargers tailgater received a ticket for throwing a football in the parking lot at Qualcomm Stadium before a game last month.
Jesse Unger, 27, was approached by police and handed a citation, and while he says the officers told him it was for $60, he discovered online that it actually was $280.
Unger took the matter to court last week, and the judge agreed with Unger that it was ridiculous. He suspended the fine after Unger pleaded guilty to “throwing the football.”
“I couldn’t believe that I was going to admit to something that has no business being considered a crime,” he said.
Then, according to Unger, the judge complained about the Chargers’ lack of production in the running game.
The San Diego Union-Tribune investigated and determined that three other NFL venues have a similar police: Tennessee’s LP Field, Indianapolis’ Lucas Oil Stadium and Seattle’s CenturyLink Field.
• The Knicks were routed by the Spurs on Sunday, 120-89, but owner James Dolan remains confident in his team. Either that, or he’s setting up coach Mike Woodson to take the fall.
While performing with his band, JD & The Straight Shot, at the Cutting Room in Manhattan, Dolan reportedly said of Wednesdays game against the Hawks: “We’re going to win the next game. That’s a guarantee.”
This came after fans started a brief “Fire Woodson” chant during Sunday’s game.
Said Woodson when asked about the fans’ reaction: “I don’t worry about that stuff. I’ve got to coach them.”
Woodson did acknowledge that his team played like one with no pride.
“No, not at all,” he said. “It’s something we’ll address [Monday] at the practice facility. It’s my job to push them through it and get them over the hump.”
