Exam To Determine Peyton Manning’s Future

Houston Texans v Denver Broncos

Peyton Manning’s future beyond this season will be determined by the results of an offseason exam on his surgically repaired neck, sources familiar with the star quarterback’s mindset told Chris Mortensen of ESPN.

Despite setting NFL single-season records for passing yards and touchdowns in 2013 with the Denver Broncos, Manning will undergo the physical exam in March, as mandated by his contract, the sources told Mortensen.

If the exam reveals that his neck is stable, Manning plans to return to the Broncos in 2014, regardless of how Denver fares this postseason, according to sources.

But if there is an increased risk of injury, Manning will be forced to decide whether to retire, sources said.

The 37-year-old Manning raised speculation about his future this past week when he said, “The light is at the end of the tunnel for me, no question.” The four-time league MVP made the comment leading up to Denver’s AFC divisional playoff game Sunday against the San Diego Chargers.

    his health is first priority … I hope he comes back

  2. Of course his health is important. He was not referring to that, only that he regonizest that he sees the end of his career appriaching. Of course it is, but he knows that he will play only if he can perform at a high level. That is what he was referring to. THAT AND THAT only!
