Manning Remains on Colts' Active Roster

Publish date:

Indianapolis Colts' vice chairman Bill Polian said Monday night that injured quarterback Peyton Manning will remain on the active roster for the rest of the season, even if it's just to practice. Manning has been out for the entire 2011 season after having surgery on his neck.

"I think it's important for him to feel like, `Hey I'm back, I can do the things that are necessary to say I can play like I want to,"' Polian said. "The bottom line is he needs to feel good about being back and doing the things he wants to do."
