As he continues to recuperate from a neck injury that may cost him his season, Peyton Manning will not attend the Colts’ game today. But he did pay a visit to the Colts’ facilities last week for the first time since his most recent surgery.
ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reports that Manning did “light therapy” and watched part of Friday’s practice but won’t be at Lucas Oil Stadium today.
Manning’s doctors have told him that he needs to rest, and attending a game is more than he’s up for. Presumably, if he can’t even attend a game, he’s a very long way from being able to play a game.
The good news for Manning is that since he won’t be attending Browns-Colts he can stay home and watch a good game.
