Peyton Manning has officially been listed as "out" for 2-3 months He could be put on IR, which means he has had a 2nd neck surgery this morning. Rehab for that type of injury is 6-8 weeks minimum. Peyton could take longer. The Colts are now in a HUGE hole without Manning for the season, but I'm sure they'd rather have him come back healthy & not risk further injury. We all know that Peyton will come back. It's just won't be this year. Make no mistake, his absence leaves the AFC South title there for the taking. He will miss the entire 2011 NFL season. Remember, he has already had rehab once and Peyton himself said that it was a slow, painful process & that he thought he'd be feeling better by now. Clearly he needed a 2nd surgery to fix it.
