Ailing Manning now deals with rib

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Another day, another injury for Peyton Manning.

The Broncos updated their injury report Saturday to add the 39-year-old's latest ailment, a sore rib cage. He's also dealing with a sore right foot but is still expected to play against the Chiefs today. He's listed as probable.

Last week, it was a sore right shoulder that bothered Manning.

The Chiefs have lost seven straight to the Broncos since Manning's arrival in Denver.

The five-time MVP can break two of Brett Favre's NFL records today. He needs 3 yards to become the all-time passing leader and another win to become the all-time winningest quarterback.

SECURITY: The league said it will increase security inside and outside its stadiums for today's games, two days after the Paris terrorist attacks. Spokesman Brian McCarthy said there will be more security and law enforcement at the venues and in parking lots, along with other added security measures. A league statement said it has been told by the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI "there are no known threats against NFL stadiums."

PACKER HONOR: Ron Wolf is about to receive one more honor in an already memorable year for the former Packers GM. Wolf's name will be unveiled on the east facade inside Lambeau Field at halftime of today's game. Green Bay bestows that honor to Packers who have been enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He was inducted in August. Wolf joined the Packers in 1991 and the next year traded for QB Brett Favre, part of a series of moves that helped return Green Bay to one of the NFL's elite franchises. Wolf was the Bucs' vice president of operations in the franchise's first three years (1976-78).

    ST. PETERSBURG — Rays manager Kevin Cash liked the way Alex Cobb was competing Friday night.

So as the game headed toward the ninth, there was no doubt in Cash's mind that sending Cobb back to the mound was …

He had two hits Wednesday in Oakland and three hits Friday against the Rangers. Okay, one was an infield hit that bounced high in front of the plate, but the other was a long home run to …

    After Mississippi football coach Hugh Freeze resigned Thursday, with the opener six weeks away, offensive line coach Matt Luke is being thrown into an interim head coaching position. He will try to save a season that already had been scarred by a self-imposed bowl ban for NCAA violations.
