The Indianapolis Colts announced quarterback Peyton Manning (knee) had an infected bursa sac removed from his left knee Monday, July 14, and he is expected to make a full recovery. The procedure was routine and Manning should be back at full strength in four to six weeks.
Fantasy football participants looking to draft Manning, who has not missed a start in 10 seasons, as their top signal caller this year should not be alarmed by this situation.
The recovery time will cut into the start of training camp for Manning, but let's be real here - Manning isn't a player who needs training camp. As long as this injury doesn't linger and he is able to return midway through camp, his timing and that of the Colts' high-powered offense should be on par with previous seasons.
Continue to select him as a No. 1 fantasy quarterback with confidence.
