No 3rd Surgery for Manning…YET
Byron Lambert, Rosterwatch.com
Sources say Peyton Manning has in fact NOT had a clandestine 3rd neck surgery but that it has not been ruled out either. Stay tuned folks if Manning is going to be available this year he needs to be rostered but the overtones here are very ominous. It is time to resort to full contingency plans if you are a Manning owner.
The statement that was released by Peyton Manning today about “missing his teammates more than they miss him” suggests he knows this is going to be an ordeal. If Peyton is on your fantasy squad you can overcome this but you will be forced to be the best in your league when it comes to everything else: pickups, coaching decisions, staying on top of the news, making opportunistic trades, etc….
