Caldwell Not Sure When Manning Will be Back

Peyton Manning is still trying to make it back from his latest neck surgery, and today coach Jim Caldwell stated that he is not sure when the franchise QB will be back on the field playing.

The preseason launches in two days, but Colts quarterback Peyton Manning has yet to practice, after offseason neck surgery. Coach Jim Caldwell addressed the situation on Tuesday.

“Doing well, coming along,” Caldwell said of Manning, in comments distributed by the team. “He’s working extremely hard at it. Doing all the little things that it requires to get him where he wants to be. I think you guys know as well as I do he’s ready to go and will be out there because he is chomping at the bit, that’s for certain.”

So will he be back for training camp? “I’m not certain of that,” Caldwell said.

“He’s doing what the doctor is telling him to do, let’s put it that way,” Caldwell said of Manning. “He is going through his rehab, they have everything mapped out for him and they’re adjusting as it goes so I think he is comfortable with the plan they have set for him.”
