With rampant rumors and reports regarding the status of quarterback Peyton Manning, a source with knowledge of the situation tells us that Manning could have neck surgery as soon today, and that he will miss “significant time” as he recovers.
It’s currently expected that, after the surgery, Manning will recover and play again, possibly this year.
Manning has had two neck surgeries in the past two years. The most recent procedure occurred on May 23. He returned to practice last week, but a setback has forced him back to sidelines.
