    ENGLEWOOD, Colo. Clutchfit Drive 2 Green . -- The MRI determined the hit caused no further damage to Peyton Mannings tender right ankle. Now, Manning and the Broncos are curious what the NFL thinks of that hit. Interim coach Jack Del Rio said the Broncos have sent replays to the league offices of Corey Liugets dive at Mannings ankles in the closing minutes of Denvers 28-20 win over San Diego. "In the rules, there are certain areas you can hit and certain areas that are supposed to be protected," Del Rio said Monday. "And we thought that got into an area that was supposed to be protected." Manning, whose ankles have been hurting since games against Jacksonville and Indianapolis last month, stayed down after Liuget dove at him following a completed pass that iced the game with 1:44 left. Manning limped through the rest of the game and in the locker room afterward. An MRI on Monday showed no further damage to the ankle, which was heavily taped throughout the Chargers game. Del Rio said Manning would play next Sunday in Denvers AFC West showdown against Kansas City. The quarterbacks practice schedule will be determined later in the week. "But hell definitely play this week," Del Rio said. "Hes ready to roll and thats good news." Though it only lasted a brief moment, the sight of Manning wincing in pain on the ground served as a chilling reminder of how fragile Denvers season could be. Manning added four more touchdowns against the Chargers to bring his total to 33 on the season -- tied with Tom Brady for most through nine games in NFL history. But theres still validity to the point Broncos executive John Elways made when he signed Manning two offseasons ago: "I dont have a Plan B. Were going with Plan A." On Monday, Del Rio was asked about Mannings backup, Brock Osweiler: "A good young player that is better in his second year than he was as a rookie. Continuing to develop. The arrow is up on him." Manning got sacked two times against the Chargers and hit five more. Hes been sacked a total of 12 times and hit 27 in the seven games since Chris Clark replaced the injured Ryan Clady at left tackle. In three straight games, Clark has allowed Manning to be sacked and stripped from the blind side. And next up come the Chiefs, who lead the league with 36 sacks, including 11 by Justin Houston and 9 by Tamba Hali. "Were definitely on high alert, wanting to protect our quarterback," Del Rio said. "We didnt do as well as we can and we needed to yesterday and weve got a big challenge going against a team thats sacked quarterbacks more than any team in the league." Manning, who did not speak to reporters Monday, acknowledged after the game that hed been having some trouble with the ankles the last few weeks. "Im pretty sore," he said. "They got me twice and I was hoping to make some progress after the bye week, but Im pretty sore." Notes: Del Rio said there was no structural damage to LB Nate Irvings shoulder and said the team was hopeful Irving could return to practice this week. ... The coach reported "no rust" in his first game serving as a head coach since November 2011, when he was let go by the Jaguars. He said coach John Fox was watching from his home in North Carolina. "I told him we were trying to make it a little bit easier finish for him. I was sorry we couldnt extend the lead and make it where he could rest comfortably at home," Del Rio said. ... CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie sacrificed his starting spot Sunday to Quentin Jammer, a first-round pick of the Chargers in 2002 who was playing his first game in San Diego as a visitor. "That was cool," Del Rio said. Under Armour Shoes Uk . Right-hander Ricky Nolasco and the Twins agreed to terms on a free-agent contract Wednesday, a person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press. Stephen Curry 3 Shoes . - Grizzlies controlling owner Robert Pera has removed the interim tag and named Chris Wallace as Memphis general manager, signing him to a multi-year contract keeping him with the franchise.BOSTON -- Charlottes Al Jefferson got his usual nice round of applause from Boston fans during pregame introductions. Then he showed why they liked him so much when he wore green. Jefferson was a tough matchup for Bostons inside players, scoring 22 points and grabbing 11 rebounds to lead the Bobcats to an 89-83 win Wednesday night that snapped the Celtics four-game winning streak. In his second game back after missing five straight with a bruised right ankle, Bostons 2004 first-round pick helped Charlotte hold off a few late charges by the Celtics. Jefferson, who was taken 15th overall by the Celtics and played three seasons in Boston, was part of the deal in the summer of 2007 that brought Kevin Garnett to the Celtics from Minnesota. "Hes an elite low-post scorer and hes a much, much better defender than I had realized," Bobcats first-year coach Steve Clifford said of Jefferson. "But the thing thats coming through now as you watch him is his competitiveness. He badly wants to win." Gerald Henderson had 13 points, Jeff Taylor 12 and Anthony Tolliver had 11 for Charlotte, which ended a two-game skid. Jefferson said it was the first time hes been on a team that beat the Celtics. "A long time coming," he said. "Been so close many times." Jefferson feels like hes just getting his game back after being sidelined. "I still missed a lot of shots I normally would make," he said of his 8-for-17 shooting. "Ive got to get in better shape. I know theres a reason that Im not in top shape. Thats the only bad thing about getting hurt in the beginning of the year." Jeff Green paced Boston with 19 points and Jordan Crawford had 16 points and six assists. "We made some runs, but I never felt like that game -- you sit over there and Ive been through not a lot of NBA games, but a lot of basketball games, and there are certain games where you feel like the other team has got you in a little bit of a stranglehold," Boston first-year coach Brad Stevens said. "Thats the way it was. They had their way for most of the night." Both teams were without key big men. Celtics forward Jared Sullinger was out with a bruised right knee and Bobcats forward Josh McRoberts missed the game for personal reasons. Hes expected to play Friday when Charlotte is at Cleveland. It was Cliffords second game back after having two stents placed in his heart last week. One of thhe biggest ovations of the night came when free-agent first baseman Mike Napoli, a member of the 2013 World Series champion Red Sox, was shown on the Jumbotron in the opening quarter. Stephen Curry Mvp Shoes. He was seated at courtside, left at halftime and returned late in the third quarter to another nice hand from the fans seated nearby. The Bobcats led 71-64 after three quarters. Boston twice closed it to three midway into the fourth before Tolliver nailed a shot-clock beating 3 with 5:37 to play. Neither team scored for the next 2 minutes before Jeffersons short jumper pushed the Bobcats ahead by six with 2:36 left. Green then converted a three-point play, getting Boston within 85-80 with 1:26 to go, but the Celtics struggled to score after missing 12 of their first 16 shots in the final quarter. Crawfords three-point play closed it to 85-83 with 32.5 seconds left, but Jefferson had a putback off Kemba Walkers miss to seal it. But Crawford felt like the Bobcats just played harder for most of the night. "They beat us with effort. They beat us to all the loose balls and rebounds," he said. "Its not really (a game) to throw away. Its one to look at to see where we can get better. We just started off slow and couldnt get any loose balls." Charlotte led 51-43 at halftime. The start of the third quarter was filled with whistles and sloppy play, taking away any energy from the crowd. Boston narrowed its deficit to 67-64 late in the third before the Bobcats scored the final four points. In the fourth quarter, Napoli was selected as the "fan of the game," getting another loud ovation. The Bobcats opened the second quarter with a 12-2 run, pulling ahead 39-23 on Taylors two free throws 4 1/2 minutes into the period. After shooting over 60 per cent in the first quarter (61.1), Charlotte made just 28 per cent (7 of 25) in the second. NOTES: Stevens said Sullinger is day-to-day. He had an MRI on Tuesday. The former Butler coach said he watched "very little" of the college doubleheader Tuesday night that featured some of the top players in the country when four of the top five of the APs Top 25 were in action. ... Tolliver started in place of McRoberts and hit two 3s in the opening quarter. ... Napoli said, "No, not yet" when asked if hes heard from the Red Sox about a contract offer while he was seated and signing autographs during a timeout in the third quarter. Cheap Jerseys Wholesale JerseysWholesale Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
