Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay refuted an ESPN report that Peyton Manning had received clearance from doctors to return to football.
The report said Manning was OK to return to football following his neck surgery, according to his doctors, but still needed to regain strength in his throwing arm. However, Irsay says that is not true, tweeting a late night statement on the matter.
The tweet said, "Peyton has not passed our physical nor has he been cleared to play for The Indianapolis Colts. Team statement coming on Friday."
So on to the next chapter in this on-going saga. For news interest isn't it great that the Super Bowl is being played in Indianapolis where the spotlight can shine down constantly on the Manning-Irsay situation?
If the Super Bowl were being held some place like Miami or Houston, all we'd have to write this week about would be the game.
