INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Indianapolis Colts coach Tony Dungy says he may activate Peyton Manning on Tuesday. But he says the two-time NFL Most Valuable Player probably won't play in the team's final preseason game Thursday night.
Manning underwent surgery July 14 to have an infected bursa sac removed from his left knee. He has been on the physically unable to perform list the entire preseason. He has never missed a regular-season start in his 10-year career.
Manning got limited light practice last week. He was on the sideline, but not in uniform, for Sunday's game. Backup quarterback Jim Sorgi, who started the first three preseason games, also missed Sunday's game because of a sore knee.
Dungy says the Colts may keep three quarterbacks on the regular season roster because of those injuries.
