Peyton Manning May Start Throwing Soon

Saturday December 3rd, 2011

Indianapolis Colts star quarterback Peyton Manning will be allowed to start throwing soon, according to The Associated Press. The former league Most Valuable Player has been sidelined the entire season recovering from neck surgery.

Manning told reporters today that his workout intensity will increase and part of his rehab will include throwing, though he is still not cleared to practice with the team. This marks an important step for Manning who had surgery to correct a damaged nerve that was causing weakness in his throwing arm. In his absence this season, Indianapolis has failed to win a game. The Colts are now 0-11. There is no known timeline for his return.
