So why was Peyton Manning so slow to come back with the Colts during the preseason? The ASSOCIATED PRESS reports today that it turns out he had “two surgical procedures on his left knee before returning to the field in late August.”
Manning missed all of the Colts preseason games before returning to the field on Aug. 26. He has continued to rehab the knee throughout the season, and finally showed his old form yesterday as the Colts crush the Ravens 31-3.
The fun part of the story? Colts Coach Tony Dungy’s public reax to the news.
Dungy has confirmed that Peyton Manning actually had two surgical procedures on his left knee before returning to the field in late August.
Strangely, Dungy, while holding a balloon and sucking on a lollipop, also confirmed that the recent stock market crash had nothing to do with the lending practices of banks. And that George W. Bush will go down as one of our most popular presidents ever.
