A person with knowledge of the results says Peyton Manning's MRI showed aggravation of his right ankle that is not expected to keep the Broncos quarterback out of next Sunday's game against Kansas City.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because the team hasn't addressed the issue. Interim coach Jack Del Rio meets with the media Monday afternoon.

While Manning was throwing the final pass in a 28-20 win over the Chargers, San Diego lineman Corey Liuget hit the quarterback around the ankles. Manning was noticeably limping as he finished the game.

He had an MRI on Monday morning.

Manning originally hurt both ankles last month.

The Denver Post had first reported the results of the MRI.
