Peyton Manning, Peyton Manning could soon be throwing footballs to his teammates, the best news Colts fans have heard since this miserable season began. While the Colts and the four-time league MVP are still trying to find out what the next part of his rehabilitation program entails, lifting weights and throwing balls are apparently going to be part of it.
“Throwing will be part of the next progression,” Manning said Friday before heading back to the team’s weight room. “I will be doing some throwing and I have been doing some throwing. But now we’re going to ramp it up a little more.” Manning called the news encouraging and said he would like to practice or even play this season if he’s cleared. Vice chairman Bill Polian said he is pleased with Manning’s progress
“It’s great news that the fusion has healed,” Polian said after speaking at the Big Ten Football Awards Gala. “It’s on schedule, so we just keep going from here.”
It was welcome news in a winless season that began with Manning underdoing his third neck surgery in 19 months back on Sept. 8. He has not practiced since having a single-level spinal fusion that doctors hope will not only alleviate pressure on a damaged nerve that had caused weakness in Manning’s throwing arm but allow the 35-year-old quarterback to return to his perennial Pro Bowl status.
