Manning arrives in Terre Haute

TERRE HAUTE — Tony Dungy let the cat out of the bag Tuesday morning.

The Indianapolis Colts coach confirmed that quarterback Peyton Manning — who is recovering from surgery to alleviate a bursa sac infection in his left knee — had arrived in Terre Haute for training camp. The details of when he got there and where he is at, though, remain cloaked in secrecy.

“Peyton is doing fine. He’s following the doctor’s orders, which is what we can ask for. And so far he’s progressing normally and doing well,” Dungy said after the Colts’ morning practice. “He’s here. He’s immobilized. We don’t want a lot of people trying to see him. And that’s why we’re not saying exactly where he is. But he’s here in town.”

Manning underwent a surgical procedure on the knee July 14 and has been undergoing treatment at his home in Indianapolis for the past two weeks. He is expected to be sidelined for another two to four weeks, although he may be cleared to watch practice at some point.

“There’s not a time frame on that. We were just told kind of four to six weeks from the original onset [of the infection]. We’re kind of watching [rookie tight end] Tom Santi’s progress. He’s a little bit ahead of [Manning],” he said.

“So our big thing is we’re not going to rush him out here to try and get him back for week three or week four of the preseason. When he’s ready to go, he’ll be out [to begin practice]. And hopefully he does get some preseason time in. But we’re looking at the long haul.”

Santi underwent a similar surgery for a bursa sac infection in his knee in early July and is continuing to recover.
