Jim Irsay has teetered back and forth as to whether or not Peyton Manning will be back this season.
Former reporter and current Indiana University graduate student Josh Weinfuss tweeted Jim Irsay as saying at a Super Bowl breakfast Monday morning, "My anticipation is he can come back probably in 2012. I don't see him coming back this year. It’s possible."
Then, he continued to quote Irsay, saying, "Peyton should be back. He had the neck fusion, it went well. The biggest thing is to continue to get the regeneration back in the nerve in his throwing arm and we feel that he will."
Irsay tweeted Monday "I didn't say Peyton out 4season FOR SURE,keeping him on ActiveRoster n taking it month by month/Outside chance of return n December possible."
So what does that mean for the Colts this season, and more importantly, the rest of Manning's career?
Let's take a look.
