QB Peyton Manning To Play Less In Broncos-Niners Game?

Posted By: Sweets 3 Weeks Ago

In his first game since the 2010 season, Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning played a dozen snaps against the Chicago Bears before playing the entire first half -- 33 plays -- against the Seattle Seahawks last Saturday night.

The third preseason game is when teams usually play their starters into the third quarter, but according to Jeff Legwold of The Denver Post, Manning hinted that he could play less than originally planned against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.

While less Manning might cause groans from FOX, which will broadcast the game nationally, there's little reason for head coach John Fox to prolong Manning's exposure to the 49ers' pass rush. A series or two, or possibly a quarter of action, should be enough on Sunday and that could be the last time we see Manning before Denver's season-opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Denver's final preseason game is against the Arizona Cardinals, the other NFC West team that unsuccessfully attempted to woe Manning in March.
