The Broncos' quarterback received a concussion test during his team's 17-9 victory here Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Manning received a blow to the head while throwing a touchdown pass to tight end Jacob Tamme with 18 seconds left in the first half. After Manning threw, Chiefs defensive lineman Tyson Jackson reached the quarterback and knocked him to the ground.

As Manning fell, the back of his helmet slammed against the turf. He got up holding the back of his head with his right hand as right guard Chris Kuper checked on him.

Manning was administered a concussion test by the team's medical staff and was cleared. He never missed a snap in the hard-fought game. Afterward, X-rays of Manning were taken a precaution.
