The Indianapolis Colts placed superstar quarterback Peyton Manning on the physically-unable-to-perform list.
Manning, who signed a five-year contract with $90 million contract extension on Saturday, is recovering from neck surgery done last May.
The four time NFL MVP, who will be coming his 14th season, said he doesn’t know yet when he will be able to practice.
Manning said, “I’ve just been evaluated by the doc and my trainers and we’ve kind of formulated a plan. We started today and we’ll go multiple times a day. Nobody wants to get healthy more than I do. I don’t like missing practice. The sooner I can get healthy and get cleared, the sooner I’ll be out there.”
The surgical treatment done last May was not connected to the neck procedure he experienced over a year ago, which calmed pain from a pinched nerve.
In 2010, the 35-year-old quarterback had one more sensational season, passing for 4,400 yards with 33 touchdowns and 17 interceptions.
During the NFL career of Manning, he has never missed a game.
