Irsay can't imagine Manning playing this year

It sounds like a foregone conclusion, but Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay said he doesn't "envision Peyton (Manning) playing this season."

Manning has missed the entire season with a neck injury, and now the topic regarding him in recent days has shifted from whether or not he might play this season to what the Colts will do with Manning and the No. 1 pick in the draft, if Indy takes Andrew Luck of Stanford, as expected.

"These things take time. The best doctors can't predict. People often think someone knows for sure, and the answer is only time will tell," Irsay told WRTV via the Indianapolis Star. "He is doing everything he can to get back and is working as hard as he can."
