Colts: Only medical staff can watch Manning throw

After Indianapolis Colts center Jeff Saturday said new coach Chuck Pagano and new general manager Ryan Grigson should schedule a time to watch Peyton Manning throw, word comes from the team via NFL Network's Albert Breer that they can't.

Breer reports that Colts officials have told him they are prohibited from scheduling a throwing session with manning because of the rules of the collective bargaining agreement, which won't allow such a thing until April. The problem is, of course, the Colts have to decide by March 8 if Manning is healthy enough for them to pay a $28 million roster bonus.

The only people in the organization who are allowed to watch Manning throw in the interim are the Colts medical staff, because Manning failed his exit physical. They cannot tape him throwing, but can report back to Grigson, Pagano and owner Jim Irsay on what they saw.
