Peyton Manning Got Flagged for Yelling "Eff You" at DJ Swearinger Shortly After Wes Welker's Concussion

Peyton Manning got penalized for taunting during Saturday night’s exhibition against Houston, and any lip-reading guesses about what the Broncos quarterback said were more or less confirmed after the game by Denver Post reporter Mike Klis:

Manning’s touchdown pass to Emmanuel Sanders, and subsequent taunting penalty, came shortly after Swearinger laid a shoulder-to-helmet hit on Wes Welker, which gave the Broncos receiver his third concussion over the past two seasons. John Leyba of the Denver Post captured a still image of the hit:

It’s currently unknown when/whether Welker will play again for the Broncos. More importantly, knowing what we’ve learned about the long-term effects of concussions, one winces when thinking about what the receiver’s life might be like a decade or two from now.
