Report says Peyton Manning intends to play in 2016 - [Full Article]

Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk is reporting that Peyton Manning not only intends to get healthy and play this season, but he also plans to play in 2016.

Manning has sore ribs and a torn plantar fascia in his left foot. He was inactive Sunday against the Bears and didn't travel to Chicago.

Brock Osweiler started in Manning's place and played well. He completed 20-of-27 passes for 250 yards and two TDs while throwing no interceptions. The Broncos beat the Bears 17-15.

Fantasy Impact: 

Manning has struggled mightily this season with nine touchdowns compared to 17 interceptions. He has completed 58.3 percent of his passes and has a rating of 67.6. It seems like a stretch that Manning, at his age with his injuries, would go to a new team and learn a whole new system, especially considering his struggles this season.
