    Stunning news per PFT. And he just signed that huge contract. Hmmmm......

    Here’s one that we considered holding until we could get confirmation. But the emails are flowing in like chocolates on a conveyor belt, and the only way to turn the machine off is to post an item on what could be a stunning development in the saga of Colts quarterback Peyton Manning.

    Radio host John Michael Vincent of ESPN 1070 in Indianapolis says via Twitter, citing multiple unnamed sources, that Manning needs another procedure on his neck, and that Manning is out indefinitely.

    Manning has had two neck surgeries in the last two years, and there have been concerns regarding his recovery and rehabilitation. The team’s recent decision to sign Kerry Collins raised eyebrows. Since then, Manning has been activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list, and he lately has seemed upbeat when discussing the situation with the media. Also, the decision to keep only two other quarterbacks.

    Says John Michael Vincent, who goes by his initials on the air, of his report: “I’m not trying to be a newsbreaker. Never cared for that. I thought you would like to know. Seems to be solid. If I’m wrong U can torch me.”

    The Colts have been silent so far, but owner Jim Irsay has made an indirect reference on Twitter to the classic astronaut SOS: “Houston, we have a problem.” Instead of typing those words, Irsay has opted for the lesser-known follow up.

    “Excuse me, sir, I think this will be our finest hour.”

    If JMV is accurate, Colts fans will have a hard time agreeing with that.

    No, that's "WOW! just WOW!"

    Hope he's fine but that's the one guy in the NFL who literally cannot be replaced. If he's really going to miss the season then they're going to be in the drivers seat for Andrew Luck come draft time. Figures.

    If true I'd like to see this sports icon retire without chancing a very bad injury that could kill him.

    So does this mean that if Manning is out all year and the Texans win the AFC South in 2011, people will say the same thing about the them they said about the Rockets when then won the NBA title while MJ wasn't with the Bulls ?

    Who cares, potential home playoff game is all that matters. Feel bad for Manning but injuries happen to the best of them. Obviously we need to wait for better confirmation on the injury anyway.

    If this Luck kid is half as good as they say he is, then the #1 overall next year is really gonna be valuable under the new CBA rookie wage scale where teams don't have to cough up huge sums of guaranteed money for the top picks.

    You could just as easily say the Texans would have been a better team if not having to start a franchise against the greatest QB to play the game.

    Or you could say that Manning's #'s are only so great cus he gets to play the Texans secondary 2x a year for the last 10 years.

    People will always say something.

    King also says that he believes Manning out anywhere from 2-6 games.

    When's our game in Indy, maybe we get real lucky and don't face him either of the Indy games ?

    Like I said...either he has to be in street clothes or he doesn't make the trip with the team.

    Maybe we could trade one of our back up QBs for a draft pick. Hey, it worked with Dallas.

    Filed to ESPN from @mortreport: Peyton Manning is being revaluated by several doctors bc of slow progress. No other procedure planned now

    Usually I wouldn’t believe this for a second, but Manning is on my fantasy team and I have a long history of season ending injuries for QB’s going way back to the early 90’s when Randall Cunningham didn’t make it through the first game, just like Tom Brady who I also had the year when he went down.
