As expected, Peyton Manning’s neck exam went fine. Broncos source says he was fully cleared to play in 2014— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 3, 2014
The veteran quarterback underwent a postseason exam Monday on his surgically-repaired neck after previously passing a physical given to all Broncos players following the Super Bowl loss to the Seattle Seahawks.
Manning has had four neck surgeries and missed the 2011 season because of a spinal fusion operation. Denver officials expected him to return for 2014 and it appears that expectation is now a reality.
The NFL’s all-time single-season passing touchdown record holder has a five-year, $96 million deal that runs through the 2016 season. He won NFL MVP after throwing for 5,477 yards and 55 touchdowns during the 2013 season.
