LaRon Landry will face Peyton Manning, Broncos on Sunday


LaRon Landry, safety for the Indianapolis Colts, will be active for the team as they take on Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos on Sunday. Landry has mised the last four games of the season due to a high-ankle sprain.

He is as excited as ever to be back in the lineup, and anticipates playing against Manning.

Via ESPN:

“Everybody knows Peyton,” Landry said. “Great quarterback, one of the best. You really have to be sound in your coverage, give different looks, disguises. For us, it’s all about what we create, what we do on the back end and just disguising and playing sound coverage. Peyton is going to be Peyton. He’s going to make some plays, we have to respond.”

Landry will definitely have his work cut out for him against Manning though. Peyton has league-high marks in average points per game (44.2), total yards (476), and passing yards (360.7). It is clear that Landry will be seeing a lot of action on Sunday, and hopefully missing four games won’t have much of an effect on the safety.

The Denver Broncos are tied for first place in the AFC East with the Kansas City Chiefs at 6-0 on the season, while Indianapolis leads the AFC South with a 4-2 record.
