MUST READ: Manning chooses the quick painful approach

Have faith Blue Believers: Peyton chose the quickest, most painful recovery option to his surgery:

Glazer said that Manning opted for a less conventional, and more painful, procedure that entailed the removal of a portion of his hip, which then was used to fuse together the bones in his spine. (Typically, a cadaver bone is used.)

Manning’s choice shows that he’s taking a path that will get him back onto the field sooner, even though he may have chronic hip pain.
