Peyton Manning officially ruled out for Sunday

The Manning streak is dead. Long live the Manning streak. Well, Eli Manning's streak anyway. Because Peyton Manning's streak is officially over, as Bill Polian informed the public that the Colts have ruled their franchise quarterback out for Sunday's game against the Texans, ending his consecutive games started streak at 227.

"To say I am disappointed in not being able to play is an understatement," Manning said in a statement released by the team. "The best part about football is being out there on the field with my teammates.  It will be tough not to be out there playing for the organization and our fans.  I simply am not healthy enough to play, and I am doing everything I can to get my health back. 

"The team will do fine without me, and I know for sure that I will miss them much more than they will miss me.”

Peyton has been the talk of the NFL for more than a week now, as rumors of additional neck surgery swirled.

The chatter peaked when the Colts listed Manning as "doubtful" to play against the Texans on Sunday and now it's official that Manning's consecutive-start streak will end.

It seems improbable that Manning would miss the game because he hasn't missed a start since early in his college career, but it's also indicative of just how serious this injury is -- if Peyton isn't taking snaps from Jeff Saturday come Week 1, you best believe that he's dealing with a highly problematic injury.

Kerry Collins, who the Colts added in the offseason, will start for Indianapolis.

The Yankees Win, we all saw it right here on this website.  The Ed was right about Manning having another surgery, and he said it before anyone else.  Just because he types in all caps doesn't mean it's not true.
