Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is set to undergo a scheduled exam on his surgically repaired neck on Monday, ESPN.com's Jeff Legwold reported.

The exam is part of Manning's contract with the Broncos, and the team does not expect any issues. However, a report in January said that if the exam revealed any lingering issues or any possibilities for new injury risks, it would force Manning to contemplate retirement. But Manning said before the Super Bowl that he had no immediate thoughts of retirement.

Manning already passed a required physical given to all Broncos players in the days after the team's Super Bowl loss to the Seattle Seahawks last month, according to Legwold. The neck exam is the final remaining hurdle to clear Manning to play next season.
