STATEMENT FROM DR. ROBERT WATKINS

Posted Dec 1, 2011

Statement by Dr. Robert Watkins following 5:00 pm EDT conference call with Peyton Manning and Colts Medical Staff on 12/1/11*

“X-ray and CT examination of the surgical area shows that the fusion performed in September has achieved firm fixation,” said Dr. Robert Watkins. “Peyton will now be allowed to increase the intensity and breadth of his workouts as tolerated. There remains every indication that his recovery will continue. There still is no timetable for Peyton’s return to practice, which is one of many steps in his expected return to game action. He is working hard on a rehabilitation program outlined in conjunction with myself, Erin Barill and Peyton.  His response to this plan in the future will dictate his return date.”

 

“I am encouraged with what Doc had to say,” said Colts quarterback Peyton Manning. “I am happy that I can increase my rehabilitation program as outlined by him, Erin and the Colts Medical Staff. I am hopeful for continued progress in this next phase of my rehab.”
