Eli: Peyton could return this season

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning said he believes his older brother Peyton has a chance to return and play for the Indianapolis Colts this year.

Peyton Manning, of course, has missed the entire season because of a third surgery on his neck, but has not been placed on injured reserve by the winless Indianapolis Colts.

"Maybe he could be back this year," Eli told USA Today. "I don't know if that's the smart thing under the circumstances, but I expect him to be back next year."

Eli Manning said Peyton has been working hard rehabbing the injury and has generally been a fast healer in coming back from injuries.
