Irsay says Manning 'out awhile'

Last night, we posted about all the rumors and speculation via Twitter regarding Peyton Manning and the timetable on his injury.

This morning, Colts owner Jim Irsay tweeted something that is no less vague than what's been out there, but is plenty valid, saying “#18's out for awhile” as part of a tweet regarding the opening of the season.

Irsay later tweeted that Manning did not have another procedure on Sunday but that more information on his situation would be coming out soon.

Saddle up, Colts fans, this promises to be rough ride, perhaps harkening back to the dark days of Gary Hogeboom and Jack Trudeau under center. Kerry Collins is a capable fill-in, but it will take some time for him to get comfortable with the Indy playbook.
