Doc says Manning looking good

Phillip B. Wilson spoke with Dr. Neel Anand, an expert on surgeries like those Manning has endured.  The news is very encouraging:

Anand said it usually takes six months to a year for that fusion to settle and be solid, the latter my paraphrased words. That means Manning should be good to go for next season. He emphasized what he had told me before, “Playing this season was impossible, but he can come back next season.”
