Manning working out at Duke

Peyton Manning is apparently rehabbing at Duke according to Blue Devils offensive lineman Matt Skura:



He’s working out with family friend and Duke head coach David Cutcliffe according to the Duke Hoop Blog:

Duke head coach David Cutcliffe was Manning’s offensive coordinator at the University of Tennessee.

He has remained close to the Manning family for nearly 20 years, also coaching two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli at Ole Miss.

Eli spent time during the lockout working out with Cutcliffe and his staff and earlier in the year credited Cutcliffe with helping him refocus after a subpar 2010 season.

Jim Irsay’s private plane made a trip to Raleigh-Durham, home to Duke, on Friday with a return Sunday just after 7PM (Thanks Laura!). It may or may not be related but it would be a much more positive sign were Irsay paying for Manning or members of the staff out there. No flights to Raleigh-Durham have been made since however.

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.
