Stem-cell therapy for Peyton, but no Colts game

Peyton Manning continues to avoid the injured reserve list for the Colts, despite recent neck surgery that certainly puts his season in jeopardy.

He also will continue to avoid the public spotlight, as Manning won't be showing up for the Colts game on Sunday. Per Chris Mortensen of ESPN, Manning has "no plans to attend" the Colts home opener against Cleveland on Sunday, based on doctor's orders.

The medical experts believe that Peyton needs to "rest his body and mind" and sitting on the sidelines for Sunday's action against the Browns would absolutely be the opposite of that. Not only would Manning get harassed by the media, but he'd be the focus of roughly 5,463 camera shots during the game.

And, of course, he'd probably pop a vein in his neck just watching the Colts offense operate in poor fashion for the second-straight week. (Jim Irsay tweeted Saturday that everyone should "Eat drink and be merry ... 4 2morrow we die!!!!!" on Saturday -- a not-so-veiled reference to how much action Joseph Addai should see Sunday.)

Manning's Pain in the Neck
Manning did some "light therapy" recently but that's not nearly as interesting as some of the news that Fox Sports' Jay Glazer dropped Sunday morning.

"Manning, prior to surgery, actually flew to Europe for stem-cell therapy that's used overseas but not yet in the US," Glazer reported.

Think about that for a second: one of two things caused Manning to cruise across the pond and undergo a medical treatment that hasn't been cleared in America. It's either a) he was desperate to try and get ready for the season, or b) his condition is more serious than we thought.

The logical answer seems that he was hustling for the start of the season and a chance to be ready by Week 1, but it's also indicative of just how problematic Peyton's neck injury is for the Colts.

Brinson has this one all wrong.  Manning, one of (if not THE) greatest QB of my time (non Colts fan in his 40s), wants to play.  His choice to fly overseas for cutting edge surgery that is that is not used in the US shows me he wants to play.  He is willing to do anything it takes to get back on the field for his team.  I tip my hat to him.  I have long felt that he is class and a true gentleman. 
Ease up Brinson and think outside of your cubicle.
