Statement from the Indianapolis Colts on QB Peyton Manning"Peyton Manning yesterday underwent a procedure to relieve pain in his neck caused by a pinched nerve. This condition has existed intermittently for the past four years, but at no time did it interfere with his training, practice or playing regimen. While it never has affected Peyton's activity on or off the field, the Colts' medical staff, after post-playoff examination, thought it best to resolve the situation now.

"The procedure was performed by Dr. Richard Fessler in Chicago. Peyton had only an overnight stay in the hospital and is on his way home. All medical personnel involved believe the issue has been resolved. Peyton fully expects to participate in the Colts' off-season program this Spring.

"This statement reflects the facts and views of Peyton, the Colts' medical staff and the Club. Consequently, we will have no further comment."
