Stop your worrying. Stop your grousing. The Franchise, Peyton Manning, will be ready to go when the Indianapolis Colts open the season Sept. 7 against the Chicago Bears.
Seriously, was there ever a question?
“I would be shocked if (Manning) isn’t there (for the season opener),” coach Tony Dungy said after Thursday night’s typically unwatchable preseason loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. “He’d have to have a dramatic setback (to miss the game).”
By setback, he means “getting hit by a bus.”
Gnash your teeth about center Jeff Saturday’s knee and the fact the Colts don’t seem to have much in the way of a second- or third-string quarterback, but as far as the big question of the preseason, consider that one answered.
