Peyton Manning’s 2011 Season is Over, Quite Possibly his Career Too!


We know this today, the Indianapolis Colts will probably not have Peyton Manning this season. You’ve heard two-three months as the timetable for his return. But given the extent of the injury, and the fact that no NFL quarterback has ever tried to come back after having done what Peyton will undergo, those two-three month estimates sound more like a way to give Indy hope, than an actual scenario.

It seems pretty clear his 2011 is done. You don’t need M.D. after your name to see that.

After traveling the entire country and consulting a half-dozen doctors, Peyton Manning elected to get a 3rd neck surgery on Thursday. This will be Peyton’s 3rd surgery on his neck since last season. The procedure is a one-level cervical neck fusion. It’s also referred to as a cervical spinal fusion.
