The Colts are well known for burying injury information, but they know they can’t just ignore all the questions about Peyton Manning.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports the Colts plan to address Manning’s status for the season opener by noon ET Monday. Schefter echoed Chris Mortensen’s report from Sunday night that there are no plans for Manning to undergo more surgery. (Schefter left off the “as of now.”)
This isn’t the only news the Colts will break Monday. Owner Jim Irsay said vice Chairman Bill Polian would have a statement about new replay assistant Jim Tressel’s status.
Florio reported on air Saturday that the NFL would review Tressel’s status with the team. Tressel’s hire was made without approval by the league, which goes against protocol.
The last time we saw Polian at a press conference, he was helping to announce Manning’s monster contract extension. This one won’t have the same celebratory vibe.
