Early Monday evening, a report surfaced that Colts quarterback Peyton Manning received medical clearance to play football.Overnight, Colts owner Jim Irsay said not so fast.Night owls who follow Irsay on Twitter saw this comment hit their timelineas the clock approached 1:30a.m. on the east coast.
Manningstill needs to regain strength in his arm due to nerve damage, according to the earlier report. Optimistic as Manning sounded in a recent television interview, it remains unclear when - or if - he would return to his quarterback role.
Following this latest salvo, it should be clear even to those Manning diehards that if there is a second act to the future Hall of Famers playing career, it will not take place in Indianapolis.
