Kuharsky: 4th surgery may have no impact

Paul Kuharsky says that a 4th surgery likely won’t change Peyton Manning’s mind:

Don’t count me among those who believe this adds any weight to the idea that Manning should retire. I’m compelled to comment on a lot, but generally steer clear of telling a guy when his career is over before the league tells him — with the lack of a contract offer. 

It’s completely Manning’s call. A fourth, previously unrevealed, surgery doesn’t change the fact that his doctor has said Manning’s neck is OK to play. I don’t know that it changes what we’ve heard about nerve regeneration and arm strength as the lone remaining issues now.
