Reports have been circulating throughout the league in latest days that Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning’s rehab back from neck surgery has been progressing in a positive direction, and four sources with information of Manning’s rehab told NFL Network’s Albert Breer that Manning steadily has regained strength in his grip and triceps.
One supply told Breer that Manning is throwing the ball “really nicely,” whilst one more mentioned the quarterback “feels great” about where he is in the process.
Now there’s reportedly visual proof to confirm Manning’s returning arm strength, as a 27-second video of Manning going by means of an aggressive throwing session in his Colts helmet, shoulder pads and jersey at Duke University appeared on YouTube late Friday.
A supply confirmed to Breer on Saturday that the player in the video was Manning.
In the video, which appears to have been taken from behind a aim post in an finish zone, Manning can be noticed throwing deep balls and “out” routes to either side of the field.
Manning was accompanied by receivers Brandon Stokley, Austin Collie and tight finish Dallas Clark at this week’s workouts, carried out beneath the supervision of Duke head coach David Cutcliffe (Manning’s offensive coordinator at the University of Tennessee). Manning had been working out in South Florida, prior to this most recent set of sessions.
The Duke athletic department confirmed to NFL Network that Manning will be at Saturday night’s guys’s college basketball game in between the North Carolina Tar Heels and Duke Blue Devils at Duke’s Cameron Indoor Stadium. Manning will be accompanied by Stokley, Collie and Clark, according to Breer. Colts center Jeff Saturday is also in Durham for the game, but the former Tar Heel will be sitting behind the Carolina bench.
Manning is due a $ 28 million alternative bonus on March eight, and speculation has persisted that the Colts will release Manning before that date.
