Just a few week’s ago it was [...]

Despite standing upon changing sands they manage to come in at #19 in the Pro Football Focus rankings:
Colts owner Jim Irsay told Indianapolis television station WXIN Thursday morning that he doesnt envision [QB] Peyton [Manning] playing this season. Manning is still rehabbing from neck fusion surgery that was performed on Sept. 8. He has recently been cleared to ramp up the rehab process. Source: CBSSports Attached Thumbnails

Yeah, this season is only 75 percent completed, but the Peyton Manning stories keep rolling in.
Here’s another one, from Chris Mortensen’s appearance Thursday morning on ESPN Radio’s Mike and Mike. Mort began by arguing that the overwhelming likelihood is that Manning would be available as a free agent, and not via trade.
