"Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning received a concussion test during his team's 17-9 victory Sunday against Kansas City. Manning took a blow to the head while throwing a touchdown pass to tight end Jacob Tamme with 18 seconds left in the first half. After Manning threw, Chiefs defensive lineman Tyson Jackson reached the quarterback and knocked him to the ground.
As Manning fell, the back of his helmet slammed against the turf. He got up holding the back of his head with his right hand as right guard Chris Kuper checked on him.
Manning was administered a concussion test by the team's medical staff and was cleared. He never missed a snap in the hard-fought game.
"I'm fine. Everything checked out OK, " Manning said as he walked out of Arrowhead Stadium toward the team bus. "I took a hit there, but I was cleared."
Remember in training camp, when Manning was often asked if he needed to take a hit to become assured his surgically repaired neck would hold up?
"I've got that covered," Manning said.
Clady's streak ends. Entering play Sunday, Broncos left tackle Ryan Clady was the only NFL tackle who had started every game and not allowed a sack.
