According to Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com, Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning will undergo his offseason neck exam.
In what the Denver Broncos expect to be a no-news-is-good-news affair, quarterback Peyton Manning is scheduled to undergo his postseason exam Monday on his surgically-repaired neck.
Manning passed the required exit physical given to all of the team’s players in the days after the Super Bowl loss to the Seattle Seahawks as the players adjourned for the offseason. Monday’s exam is part of his contract and the Broncos expect to hear Manning is ready to go for the 2014 season.
Leading up to the Super Bowl Manning stated that he plans on playing next season. The exam is only considered a formality sine Manning underwent four next procedures in 2011.
The bad news is if the doctors don’t like how Manning’s neck looks, he’ll likely have to retire.
