Maybe now everyone can calm down and step back from the cliffs edge.INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- The Colts have activated Peyton Manning from the physically unable to perform list.
The team said Monday that the four-time MVP quarterback will participate in practice on a limited basis on a "scripted" and controlled basis.
Manning has been recovering from neck surgery in May, casting doubt on whether he will be ready for the Sept. 11 opener at Houston. The Colts signed veteran backup Kerry Collins to go along with Curtis Painter, Dan Orlovsky and rookie Mike Hartline.
Manning has started 227 consecutive games, including the playoffs, the second-longest streak in NFL history for quarterbacks behind Brett Favre.
