Broncos QB Peyton Manning to miss ‘two weeks’ with back injury

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is expected to miss two weeks with a back injury, the team announced Tuesday.

Manning was the Broncos’ starting quarterback last season and was named the team’s MVP in 2014.

The team said Manning underwent surgery to repair a partially torn meniscus in his right knee in August and is scheduled to have the surgery next week.

Manning was not able to practice during the season and missed the playoffs.

The Broncos released a statement Tuesday saying they were “very sorry for the frustration and pain Peyton has caused our fans, our teammates, and our coaching staff.”

Manning will have surgery in the offseason.
