Peyton Manning leaves Broncos practice to treat thigh injury

It doesn't look like the injury is bad enough that Peyton Manning could miss the Bengals game, but it looks like it could at least limit him to some degree.

The Denver Broncos have been hit with several injuries to key starters this year, but none would be bigger than anything that would cause Peyton Manning to miss time.

Manning, who went 14 of 20 for 233 yards and a touchdown on Sunday vs. the chargers, suffered a thigh injury that forced him out of the game for the end of the second quarter.

According to The Denver Post's Mike Klis, Manning left Thursday's practice to get treatment for his thigh injury. It's unclear if the injury is still bad enough that it could cause his status for Monday night vs. Cincinnati to be up in the air, but it looks like it could at least limit him to some degree.

Per SB Nation's Denver Broncos site, the Mile High Report, Manning had "four IVs between Saturday night and Sunday morning and his dehydrated state may have had a role to play in the thigh injury."

"I had a rough night. I'm not going to lie, it wasn't an enjoyable night," Manning said. "It came out of nowhere. I was in some discomfort and had some limitations. If you can't do your job, you can't move, if you hurt yourself, you hurt the team."

The Broncos went on to win their fourth straight game and are tied with New England for the AFC's best record.
