Peyton Hopes to Be Back By Week One

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning, right, talks with former Buffalo Bills quarterback Frank Reich as the football team practiced for the first time in the new Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis,

Colts QB Peyton Manning, sidelined by an infected bursa sac on his left knee. “I’ve not really had a whole lot to say to tell you the truth,” he said. “As to when I’ll be back on the practice field, that’s still to be determined. Obviously, the sooner, the better for me. My goal is to be back for the first game.” If Peyton is to be injured for an extended period of time, Jim Sorgi will fill in. Sorgi, has only 126 career passing attempts in four seasons.

The Colts obviously need Peyton. Perhaps the best QB in the league, and one of the best of all time, Manning is the leader of the Colts offense, and is the drawing card for the Colts, in terms of fans. With the Colts going into a new stadium, they Peyton to be healthy to lead them into that new stadium. But keep this in mind, Colts fans:Manning has never missed a start in both the regular season, and the playoffs. Being the competitor that he is, expect him to be out there.
