Indianapolis Colts star quarterback Peyton Manning underwent an unreported fourth surgery last year for his neck injury, according to SI.com’s Don Banks.

The exact date of the surgery is unknown; however, it was performed anytime between his surgery on May 23 to repair a bulging disk and a surgery on Sept.9 for a cervical neck fusion, according to NFL sources.  The same doctor who performed the May 23 surgery actually did a follow-up operation last summer before the Sept.9 surgery.

League sources also told SI.com that bone spurs have developed above the site of the fusion surgery completed in September.
