Our night wouldn’t be complete without one more Peyton Manning update.
Despite an unsubstantiated report on Indianapolis radio that Manning already underwent a third neck procedure, SI’s Peter King reports that it hasn’t happened. Yet.
“Peyton Manning has not had a procedure on his neck, I am told reliably,” King wrote on Twitter. “Manning could have a procedure. He and team still investigating options. But it has not happened yet.”
In theory, that should make Colts fans feel better. But it’s telling that King’s sources admit Manning may have to undergo another procedure.
The information King passes along is similar to what the Colts blog 18to88.com has reported. If surgery was not on the table, the Colts would quickly deny the possibility.
UPDATE: Another good source chimed in. Colts owner Jim Irsay on Twitter: “Peyton didn’t have a medical procedure last sunday,we’ll have more info 2 add clarity 2 situation soon.”
