Default Peyton Manning's Return May Not Be So Imminent

According to one well-respected blogger, there's some fishy stuff going on with Manning's recovery, and a second surgery that wasn't disclosed. When asked about it, Dungy neither confirmed nor denied.

Apparently Manning had to go through another procedure on his knee to clean things out after having his bursa sac removed last month. What is the most concerning is not the second operation (which the Colts are denying), but that they cannot control the swelling in Manning’s knee and any physical movement causes MORE swelling. Once he returns to the game, gets hit, has to place a load on the knee, and drive the ball, there can be swelling. All I know is that there is MUCH more here than meets the eye. Manning has the trainer come over to HIS home for rehab and is rarely seen. Now, I have been with some big-time quarterbacks in my career like Joe Montana and Rich Gannon and never have they rehabbed from home. I thought this was not an issue and that Manning would be back. However, after talking to my friends in the league, it’s clear that this is a HUGE concern short- and long-term for the Colts.

So ... just a blog entry so far, but worth watching.

BTW, the blog author probably has a few connections and decent info. Here's his bio:

I know this isn't good sportsmanship, but I'm still not too upset that the injury
bug which has wrecked hovoc on our roster in recent years has bitten one of our divison rivals.

There's also some rumblings about Shawne Merriman's knee injury being more serious than the Chargers have suggested. I believe there was a blog entry or rumor about him considering surgery.

That deal only covered him winning a superbowl. Now that he has won one it is time to pay the piper.

I would never revel in a player's injury...but...uhhh....I can't say that I'd be too upset to play a Manning-less Colts.

I'm just sayin'...

Default Re: Peyton Manning's Return May Not Be So Imminent

I read somewhere, can't remember where - but there are good odds it was in one of TexanChick's blogs - that the bursa sac provides the lubrication to the knee. When it is removed, you end up with bone on bone contact and arthritis ensues. This does not sound good for the longevity of Peyton's career.

Everyone is penciling in the Colts as a playoff team. Understandable, as Indy has gone to the playoffs 8 of the past 9 seasons. But, it's not just Manning who is in doubt for this season. Freeney is coming off a serious foot injury. Sanders has a chronic shoulder injury. Harrison is coming off an injury marred season, entering his 13th year in the league.

While Manning is a must, these other players in question are also needed. And playing one of the toughest schedules in football, inside the leagues toughest division, the Colts are no longer a playoff lock. If they do make it in, it will be by having to play to win all the way to the last week. Not putting it in cruise control for the last 2 or 3 games.

Indy is the King of the AFC South, going 24-8 in the division and winning very title since 2003. But, they've never been more vulnerable as now. Every team in the division has been tooled to beat the Colts. Every team in the division is more physical than the Colts. Every team in the division is hungrier than the Colts. In 2008, the King will be dead. Who will wear the crown?

Okay so I've given it some thought. You know how the NFL is already giving you an early indication they want a Manning vs. Manning SuperBowl? My thinking is that whatever team takes out Peyton for the year will have to pay that price and that price may come at a playoffs cost.

It would eventually end up bone to bone, as the bone wears away the cartildge(sp). It shouldn't be bone to bone right now, and something else is causing the swelling...

As a side note, this is not the way I want to win the division. I want to beat the best at their best..

Peyton has been a GREAT HOF player. He'll be missed when he retires whether that's due to injury or age..who knows that but he's one of those players years from now you'll be glad you saw playing.

Even if Harrison, Sanders and Freeney are healthy, a Peyton-less Colt outfit looks an awful lot like a 5-11 team. I don't think a single player in the league--Brady included--means more to his team than Manning does.

If Peyton indeed made a deal with the devil, then Lucifer was awfully nice to throw in as a bonus Eli ruining the Patsies' perfect season the very next season. It's not like the Prince of Darkness to give out such freebies. Maybe it was a package deal.

We've played for the last few years with just insane injuries. I'm afraid "the best" has rarely if ever faced us at our best so I'm not going to give them even a tiny bit of pity and I'll take the division any way I can get it.

He didn't. He did it to taunt Peyton who had to sit there and watch his little brother do what he couldn't.
