INDIAN OLIS — A lot is unknown in Peyton Manning’s comeback from neck surgery.
But one particular issue is certain: It won’t fail because of lack of effort.
The quarterback has been throwing at an up-tempo pace because mid-December, just ahead of his try to return for the Indianapolis Colts’ final two games finally ended, as SI.com reported Wednesday. Manning threw in a post-practice setting with a group of receivers and operating backs Dec. 14 as part of the rehabilitation method.
1 league source stated that to “describe it as a practice is incorrect.” The session was scripted by the Colts’ strength and conditioning coaches and Manning’s rehabilitation coordinator, with then-vice chairman Bill Polian, coach Jim Caldwell and offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen monitoring from the sideline.
According to the source, Manning was throwing at about percent” and didn’t seem impaired, though the players had been constrained to an region inside the 25-yard line so the quarterback wouldn’t have to (or be tempted to) make far more taxing throws.
4 days soon after the session, Polian announced that Manning wouldn’t play at all in the 2011 season. At the time, Polian said Manning hadn’t “come far sufficient to make it prudent for him to step on the field in game action.”
Doctors consistently told Colts officials to be cautious in charting Manning’s progress throwing the ball, specifically soon after that perform in December. The doctors maintained that while Manning’s neck issue had cleared up, the difficulty with nerve regeneration remained, and there wasn’t a timetable for recovery in that location.
