AFC West injury report, Week 12: Peyton Manning required X-rays, concussion test

Jamie Squire

The Broncos quarterback got roughed up in Denver's win over the Chiefs and needed X-rays and concussion tests following Sunday's game.

Several AFC West players were forced to leave their Week 12 contests with injuries, but the most talked-about injury might be the least significant one.

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning had to have X-rays and take concussion tests after he took a handful of big hits in the team's 17-9 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. Manning's X-rays came back negative and he passed his concussion tests, so the 15-year veteran is not expected to miss any time.

The Chiefs lost wide receiver Dexter McCluster to and head and neck injury at the beginning of the second half of their loss to the Broncos. Safety Kendrick Lewis left the game in the third quarter with a shoulder injury that has been ailing him for most of the season.

The San Diego Chargers lost a pair of players in their 16-13 overtime loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 12. Safety Eric Weddle was sidelined with a concussion and inside linebacker Donald Butler exited the game in the second quarter with a groin injury that is expected to keep him out of the Chargers' Week 13 game.
