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.

About Todd Smith

Todd Smith is a part-time sportswriter who spends too much time arguing on Twitter. What he really loves is eating poorly and watching football. He got his first Colts t-shirt in 1984 shortly after the Mayflower trucks arrived and has never given up on his hometown team. He also still holds to the belief that Kordell Stewart stepped out of the end zone and thus cheated the Colts.
