MIAMI — Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig will miss Monday’s game, and maybe more, after a collision with the right-field wall Sunday.

Puig leapt into a padded support post in the right-field corner, nearly coming away with Jeff Baker’s game-winning double with two outs in the ninth. Puig missed making a spectacular catch by inches, then fell in a heap to the warning track where he remained for several minutes before walking off the field with his left arm draped around the shoulder of trainer Stan Conte.

Several teammates stopped by Puig’s locker afterward, but the outfielder, groggy and glassy-eyed, did not speak to the media. The team said he hit the left side of his head and lower leg on the fence and was examined by a doctor. A concussion test was negative and Puig is officially listed as day to day.

NEW YORK — Peyton Manning wanted to see Derek Jeter play in person one last time.

The Denver Broncos star and brother Eli sat in Jeter’s suite Sunday, watching the New York Yankees and their captain lose 5-1 to the Tampa Bay Rays.

Peyton Manning was in town not only to see Jeter but to appear Monday on late-night TV with David Letterman, another star planning to step away soon.

“I’m sad to see some of these guys retiring. I’m not far behind, but I’m glad to be able to do it,” Peyton Manning said. “I hope I know when the right time is. I know that was a hard decision for Derek. I know it’ll be hard for me, but I can tell he’s at peace with it and he’s enjoying this season.”
