Broncos defensive end Robert Ayers was excused from team meetings Monday so he could be with family on the East Coast after the unexpected death of his father. Ayers was at the Broncos' team hotel in Kansas City on Saturday night when he learned of his father's unexpected passing. "No. 1, we don't want to worry about all that," said Broncos coach John Fox. * He confirmed quarterback Peyton Manning took a concussion test during the game Sunday against the Chiefs, but was cleared.
