Found December 20, 2011 on The Colts Authority:
The Colts have been reluctant to tell anyone much about Peyton Manning.  We know now that he will not practice with the team but rather continue to throw in post-practice rehab sessions: “He’s also concerned about not taking any reps away from Dan (Orlovsky) or Curtis (Painter) in terms of week’s preparation,” Caldwell said. “He’s going to focus in more of just the rehab and probably the rehab more so outside of maybe the confines of a practice session.” Bill Polian, who earlier said on a national radio show that Manning threw with “good velocity” in Wednesday’s workout, then made an impromptu appearance today at the complex podium. Asked how Manning threw, Polian said, “Fine. Better.” Asked about his “good velocity” comment, Polian said, “That’s correct.” Polian said if Manning fails his physical at season’s end, the quarterback will be able to continue his rehabilitation with the team. “I know he wanted to get out there badly,” Polian said. “That’s his natu

Luck and Manning planning?

The stars are aligning for Andrew Luck and Peyton Manning to be able to dictate terms to the Colts to ensure their individual and mutual interests are addressed due to the likelihood that they'll be represented by the same agency: The plan between Peyton and Andrew, if there is one, remains unknown.  Peyton could try to force his way out of Indianapolis, for example by refusing...

Indianapolis Colts to Play in 2012 Without Peyton Manning and Reggie Wayne?

Indianapolis Colts fans may want to face the potentially devastating news now about what they could see on the field in 2012. Could the Colts head into the 2012 NFL season without quarterback Peyton Manning as well as wide receiver Reggie Wayne? You may not want to hear it, Colts fans, but it could very well happen. As strange as it sounds and as inconceivable as it...

Colts' Manning getting better, but won't practice this season

The health of Peyton Manning's neck is improving, but the Colts star won't participate in team practices the rest of the season.

Colts' Manning takes snaps; not cleared to play

The Colts will have to win their last two games the same way they tried to win their first 14 -- without Peyton Manning.

Ticker: Tebow gets a yeah; Peyton Manning just a maybe

Peyton Manning and Tim Tebow -- now, who got a vote of confidence and who didn't? "Tim Tebow's not going anywhere," John Elway told the Associated Press. "I mean, he's going to be a Bronco and we're going to do everything we can and hopefully he's that guy."

Colts QB Situation Turning into a Soap Opera

Over the last decade or so, an effective way to spot a lazy editor or writer has been if they use the phrase “Peyton’s Place” when referring to Peyton Manning. It’s lazy because it was a bad metaphor. See, the original Peyton Place was a novel, movie, then TV show (all of them spectacularly popular) that portrayed the countless wild and sordid goings-on in a seemingly normal...

Colts must make the tough decision

In less than two months, a great confederacy of whores (literal and figurative), and journalists (I use the term advisedly) will descend upon Indianapolis, where we will wonder in unison: "Why the ---- are we here?" I have nothing against the town, merely the idea of wintering there (having already done it once, covering Mike Tyson's rape trial, I feel entitled to...

Wayne's streak in jeopardy

Reggie Wayne was set to join NFL receiving royalty with another 1,000 yard season.  That all changed with Manning's injury: The string of 1,000-yard seasons, though, is in serious jeopardy. The absence of Peyton Manning and resulting revolving door and inconsistency at quarterback too often has rendered the passing game impotent. Overall, the Colts have run the fewest offensive...

USA Today: You be the GM

Bill Polian doesn't give many straight answers.  First he said that only running backs tend to contribute immediately.  Then he said he's not sure that trading a pick helps the team much.Confused? Polian is either great at deception (likely), unsure of his course of action (highly unlikely) or just providing entertainment (impossible).  So USA Today asks you to be the...
