MANNING MENDING

Peyton Manning is two months past his second neck procedure, and he is doing well. Manning still is passing checkpoints in his process but feels good. He hopes to continue smoothly as the season proceeds.*

INDIANAPOLIS – Peyton Manning is two months into rehabilitation from his September neck procedure.

Manning is feeling fine and meeting checkpoints along the way in his recovery and hopeful return.

"There is not a whole lot to report," said Manning.  "(I'm) still waiting for the fusion to take place.  That takes place, they (doctors) thought, between two and three months.  I'm going slow with that.  I still have some of the same issues I had before the fusion, as far as the nerves and the regeneration.  (I'm) still dealing with that, the idea being this surgery gave me the most stability for the nerves to regenerate, but that's still a process there.  I go a week at a time and try to get better each week.  I still have some restrictions on what I'm allowed to do.  I'm still positive about things improving, but I still have work to do. 

"I don't think there really is a schedule.  There's really not a schedule and there's really not a timeline.  It's sort of how I am at different checkpoints.  I would say the first of December probably is the next checkpoint.  That would be three months from the surgery."
