    Default Manning out 6 weeks after surgery

    Ouch... I had no idea!

    Peyton Manning underwent surgery this afternoon to remove an infected bursa sac from his left knee, and rehabilitation for the Indianapolis Colts quarterback could last six weeks.

    That leaves Manning’s status for the team’s Sept. 7 regular-season opener against the Chicago Bears uncertain.
    The two-time NFL MVP has started 160 consecutive regular-season games. He has missed only one play because of injury during his 10-year career.

    Team president Bill Polian described the surgery as “routine’’ in a statement and added the medical staff expects a full and complete return to action in four to six weeks.

    Polian said Manning had been receiving “conservative treatment’’ for an inflamed bursa sac from the team physicians since February. The treatment was considered productive until Manning began experiencing increased pain and early signs of infection, according to Polian.
    The Colts report to Terre Haute for the start of training camp on July 24.

    Another bursa sac thing? Marvin and Peyton are such a great duo that they even get the same injuries.

    I don't wanna jinx it, so I'll be a little worried, but I think he'll probably be ready for the game.

    If we featured the triple option as our primary offensive attack, I'd be much more concerned. Peyton has never relied much on his mobility or quickness, so I'm going to remain positive. Besides, Sorgi has a 6 to 1 TD to interception ratio for his career.

    Better to be out 4-6 weeks in July/August than in November/December. I think he'll be close to 100% by the opener.

    if he is out for a long time some how, the Colts could pickup Favre.

    Manning will be fine. He'll start against the Bears, and we'll win easily.
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    I am happy about the injury.

    1. It is not his shoulder/arm.

    2. Peyton is over thirty this will give him time to rest his arm.

    3. I hope a new guy can emerge and we as a Franchise can part ways with Jim Sorgi.
