Peyton Manning's foot injury has worsened, ESPN reports.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning has a torn plantar fascia in his right foot. Schefter says this is something Manning has been dealing with, but the injury now has worsened.

It remains to be seen if this injury will sideline Manning, but it's a serious injury to the 39-year old future Hall Of Famer.

Manning wouldn't use injuries as an excuse Sunday, but with plantar fasciitis or worse, sore ribs, and a sore shoulder, it's certainly one reason he registered a 0.0 passer rating against the Chiefs, the lowest of his career.

If healthy, Gary Kubiak said Manning would remain his starting quarterback. It seems Manning's health is very much in doubt now. Kubiak will address the media later Monday.
