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.
