Here’s something that will make Colts fans smile: Indianapolis activated Peyton Manning from the PUP list on Monday.
The four-time MVP will return to practice on a limited basis. The Colts don’t explicitly say that will happen Monday, but it’s fairly safe to assume that since they are activating him.
“He will participate in practice on a limited basis. All of his practice work will be scripted and on a controlled basis,” the Colts said in a statement.
Practicing on a limited basis is different than getting crushed by 270-pound defensive ends, but this is a big step. The chances of Manning being ready for Week One certainly look better than they did a week ago.
