Peyton Manning underwent a concussion test late in the first half of the Denver Broncos' 17-9 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, but he never left the game, Mike Klis of The Denver Post reported.
"I'm fine, everything checked out OK, " Manning told Klis. "I took a hit there, but I was cleared."
Manning was hit by Chiefs defensive lineman Tyson Jackson during a touchdown pass to Jacob Tamme late in the second quarter. Manning's head slammed to the ground, so the Broncos administered a test on him, then cleared him. The team also took X-rays after the game as a precaution.
The hit came on Manning's last pass of the half, and he was less accurate in the second half. Manning completed 13 of 17 passes for 137 yards, with a touchdown and an interception, in the first half. He connected on 9 of 20 throws for 148 yards and a TD after halftime.Follow Gregg Rosenthal on Twitter @greggrosenthal.
