Default Peyton Manning recovering from second neck surgery

Quote:
For the second time in as many years, Peyton Manning has undergone surgery on his neck.

Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star reports that Manning underwent a “minimally invasive” procedure Monday to fix a disc-related issue. He underwent surgery last March to relieve pain from a pinched nerve. It’s believed Manning has been working with teammates this offseason until this problem popped up.

Manning spent Monday evening in an Indianapolis hospital before returning to his local home Tuesday.

“There is plenty of time for recovery,’’ Manning told Chappell, noting that after his last surgery he was working out within a week and lifting weights within two weeks.

Manning is downplaying the severity of the issue and sounded optimistic about being ready for team activities, when they resume. Still, Manning has now undergone two surgeries in 15 months in the same area after a remarkably healthy career. He’s 35 years old and at a point in his career when it’s fair to wonder if his peak is behind him.

The surgery comes at a difficult time for Manning; he’s expected to work out a long-term contract with the Colts after the lockout that would make him the league’s highest paid player.

Most would be thinking in terms of Manning worrying about additional playing trauma to his head and neck area. But more acutely worrisome, this is a cervical problem causing pain and/or numbness and/or weakness of the arm(s) and/or hand(s)......not a particularly good problem for a QB to be dealing with.

Manning could be in a full body cast and still scare me. As a Texan fan, I wouldn't get my hopes up about this. I'm sure Manning will be fit and ready for the season. If not though, the Colts are screwed. Do they even have a backup that's worth anything?

Short answer - nope. Longer answer - Curtis Painter is the only backup as of last year.

Manning is 35 and his prime left him after he threw an INT in the Super Bowl to lose the game.

He has been plagued with all kinds of weird aliments the last few years and now he pinches a nerve while playing catch with his team mates?

A Texan will get turf toe and it will somehow become a career ender.
Manning will have neck surgery and come back better.

I don't like that we got stuck with the season opener again facing Manning/Colts because I think it provides more of a motivation for the Colts to avenge last years season opening embarrassment in Reliant than it does for us to repeat the performance, certainly our best game of the year.

Default Re: Peyton Manning recovering from second neck surgery

Is this a football related injury or is his neck effed up from the effort of keeping that massive cranium of his vertical?

Default Re: Peyton Manning recovering from second neck surgery

Only about 4% of cervical spine injuries in the NFL are suffered by QBs. When a QB expects to be sacked, he usually takes a fetal like position, with his head tucked in. Any trauma, accidental or not, to the top of his head by a defensive player is enough to create a herniation of a cervical disc. Once it occurs once, it becomes more vulnerable to lesser trauma. If one level is treated, it can put more stress on the adjacent disc. It can act as a domino effect. If Manning had his 2nd non-invasive procedure on the same segment, he can probably expect to go on to an open cervical fusion procedure (ala Slaton) sometime in the future........especially if he sustains further trauma to the area.

So he does have a cervix. I knew it with all that bitching he does to the refs.

If my head was that big I'd probably need neck surgery too.

Default Re: Peyton Manning recovering from second neck surgery

From today's Indianapolis Star:

Quote:
Quarterback Peyton Manning hasn't thrown since undergoing surgery to repair a disk-related issue in his neck May23, but he was at Morton's, where he was excused from carrying a tray, and at the softball game, where he didn't take a spot in the lineup.

Curtis Painter, his backup, is healthy and throwing, and on Thursday, was golfing.
Not carrying a restaurant tray?......or participating in a softball game? Following the procedure he underwent, these activities, especially the 1st, would normally be "on the menu" within a few days following the surgery.
Being extra careful? Not a reasonable explanation.

Default Re: Peyton Manning recovering from second neck surgery

Excuse me if I seem to have remained so skeptical about situation and progression of events. But his lack of having his "personal therapist" is not why his rehab schedule is so slow. It is because the significance of his injury(ies) have been minimized.

Peyton Manning has “no idea” when he’ll be ready to go

Quote:
Colts quarterback Peyton Manning is at the annual Manning Passing Academy, but he’s not doing any passing. Manning said he’s not ready to throw, has “no idea” when he will be, and is concerned about his recovery from May neck surgery. And Manning blames the lockout for his inability to work with the physical therapist he most trusts.

“The lockout didn’t allow me to work my [Colts] therapist, Erin Barill, and I’m just not comfortable taking any chances with this thing,” Manning told ESPN’s Chris Mortensen. “Erin knows me. He’s rehabbed me through two other surgeries [neck and knee] and I think most people understand that once you build up a trust with your therapist, that’s the guy you want and need to work with.”

So as long as the lockout is going on, Manning won’t be able to say whether he’s healthy enough to play. We have a feeling that when the lockout ends and Manning is negotiating a new contract with the Colts, he’ll be saying he expects to be at full strength for years to come.
