Broncos: Peyton Manning’s quad was strained, not torn

From Troy Renck:

Peyton Manning strained his right quadricep on Dec. 14 in San Diego, but it never advanced to a more serious injury, according to a team source...The Broncos say Manning played with a strain, not a full tear.

Of course, the Broncos don't want to open themselves up to a fine from the league for downplaying an injury to the NFL's marquee player.
