Report: More surgery for Manning

It appears Peyton Manning will miss more than this Sunday's opening game at Houston.

According to a report on, Manning underwent further neck surgery Thursday. It is not yet known if Manning would be able to return to play this season.

The news of this latest procedure, a reported cervical fusion, comes hours after Colts owner Jim Irsay wrote in a tweet Thursday morning that the quarterback is "out for awhile."

Manning, who has started every game for the Colts since 1998, underwent a second neck surgery in May. He was activated off the team's physically unable to perform (PUP) list on August 29, and his recovery slowed in the last week.
