Denver, CO ( - Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is expected to play Sunday in an AFC West showdown against Kansas City despite a sprained ankle.

Manning took several rough hits during this past Sunday's game against San Diego and came up limping after a fourth-quarter completion that helped seal Denver's 28-20 victory.

According to the Denver Post, an MRI exam Monday revealed an aggravation of a high right ankle sprain that Manning had sustained earlier this season. The paper cited a source as saying there was no new damage to the ankle.

Manning has the Broncos off to an 8-1 start this season with a matchup against the unbeaten Chiefs set for Sunday night in Denver. He has also put up incredible numbers.

In just nine games this season, Manning has completed 71 percent of his passes for 3,249 yards with 33 touchdowns and six interceptions.
