Default Manning undergoes cervical fusion surgery, out 2-3 months

I know this isn't Broncos news, (so move it if you want), but I think it's something for discussion-

--------------------------------------------------------------------------


Florio told you an hour ago that Peyton Manning’s surgery could happen as early as Thursday. We can now tell you that surgery is complete.

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reports Manning had cervical fusion surgery, which wrapped up this afternoon. The expected recovery is 2-3 months, although we’ve seen with this injury how tricky it is to put a timeline on anything. There is no plan for Manning to go on I.R.

Manning reportedly consulted with a half-dozen doctors who came up with the solution to get cervical neck fusion.

A timeline to return is just a guess. Indianapolis had no idea how Manning would respond to his last surgery. After delays, he tried to practice lightly for a week. That caused a setback and further surgery. No one can truly know where this goes from here.

“He’s been on the clock since May,” Archie Manning said of his son to Mort. “He didn’t make it. Obviously, it’s a big letdown, but he can relax a little bit compared to the intensity of everything he has done trying to rehab.”

It sounds like the Colts will hold out hope that Manning can return this season, but the landscape of the AFC South has clearly changed.

It’s up to Kerry Collins and company to keep the Colts afloat in the meantime. We have our doubts they can do so.

Even if Manning was able to play again this season, it could be too late to make a difference

Looks like this is a reasonably serious Surgery-where's Doc Bronc?

Manning had a single level anterior fusion. If he was a fighter pilot, he wouldn't be allowed back in the plane.
2-3 month recovery time is unbelievably aggressive for procedure. Most would just be out of collar at that point.

and "jocktodoc"
Peyton Manning will miss at least 3 months after 3rd neck surgery in 19 months. This fusion will likely end his season & possibly his career

I've never liked Peyton, but I will be very sad if this is career ending.

also: maybe drafting Reggie Wayne in the third round in fantasy wasn't such a good idea

No it wouldn't. It would be sad if it was life threatening, but this is great news for everyone in the AFC.

Yes. My brother had a fusion surgery after his bicycle (with him on it) was hit broadside by a school bus. He's got a limited range of motion and is in frequent pain (varying severity). As if that wasn't enough, the fused area is deteriorating and he's looking at more surgery.

Peyton and the Colts may be slow to admit it, but even if the fusion succeeds he won't be able to play. I hope the process of facing up to the truth is not as long, slow or painful (to the fans) as the Favre circus, but I'd bet on it: Peyton's done.

Yes and no.

I never like to see any of the GOATs miss time because they're so important to the NFL in general. And I wanted to see Peyton crush Favres records.

...that being said if this were years ago when we used to be in the playoff races, I'd be fine with it.

NFLN has a poll going on how many wins they will have... results not out yet.

BUT they were 24th last year in defense and 32nd in rush offense. Manning was their team.

Most important single player to his team in the NFL.

Yeah, I hated Manning. When that video came out, it changed my perception of him for the positive.

Putting money on the UNDER for total Colts wins would have been a shoe in this season. Where is Sorgi these days? He waited and waited for his chance and now that it is here in Indy, he is gone.

I did the same thing and I think Reggie will be fine (he certainly produced in the preseason).

I like Peyton Manning. This is sad news. Future Hall of Famer.

Saw him on the side of the road holding a clipboard that said, "Will Send In Plays FOR FOOD."

I have had a 1 level fusion also and still have chronic nerve damage, limited range of motion, pain, spasms all over the place, muscle atrophy. I have been waiting on my nerve to regenerate for over 3 years now.

I am surprised they would do a 2nd procedure so soon after the 1st. This would be his 3rd procedure in 2 years. I think there are only 7 cervical vertebrae so that means 3 of his are fused which means big time range of motion loss.

I don't see him being able to play again, I called it a couple days ago here:
