NFL Notes: Peyton Manning, Bills, Dolphins, Jets, & Redskins


Peyton Manning

A source “very close” to Broncos QB Peyton Manning tells Ross Tucker that he thinks Manning will play in 2015.

“I think he’ll be back,” the source said. “He was just emotional after the game because of the disappointment of the loss and everything that went into it. … He just needs to take a month off and get away from it all and he’ll be fine.
