NFL: Peyton Manning Out Four to Six Weeks After Knee Surgery

Chris RadezSenior Writer IJuly 15, 2008

Let the Favre to Indy rumors begin!

Peyton Manning underwent knee surgery yesterday, and could be out of action for six weeks. This makes him questionable for the regular season opener against the Chicago Bears.

Between Manning and Marvin Harrison, this Colts team might find themselves taking it easy in the first half of the season. Nobody likes injuries, no matter what team you cheer for.

Personally, I would like for Indianapolis to be perfectly healthy for the week nine matchup against my Patriots. That game is turning into a very entertaining tradition.

Good luck with your recovery Peyton!

Meanwhile, the Brett Favre saga continues. I'm already tired of hearing about this drama. Is Brett wrong for wanting to play? No.

Are the Packers wrong for wanting to move on without him? Not necessarily.

In fairness to the Packers, they did ask him to make his decision, and made it pretty obvious that they were going to move forward with Aaron Rodgers if Favre did, in fact, retire.

But, it seems to me that if they don't want to bring him back as their starting quarterback, then they should release him and let him sign with a different team.

If they're really willing to take Rodgers over Favre, then why are they worried about playing against Favre a couple times this season?

How did this turn into a Brett Favre article? It's a contagious disease!
