Rumors abound in Indianapolis that Peyton Manning will be out for the entire 2011-12 season. Manning, the story goes, has a “floating bone” in his neck. This blogger heard the rumor 4th-hand. The story goes that this news originates from a staff member in the Chicago hospital where Manning twice had neck surgery.
The latest surgery was on May 24, 2011. Peyton Manning plays quarterback for the Indianapolis Colts, and has won the league’s Most Valuable Player award multiple years. Un-retired quarterback Kerry Collins started the preseason game versus Cincinnati last Thursday.
The rumor was all the rage at one fantasy football draft in Fishers.
“Since the Colts failed to develop the run-based double tight end offense that will accentuate a declining quarterback such as Kerry Collins’ skill set, they’ll be lucky to get 5 wins,” said fantasy football drafter Brady Glenn.
