    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning had a medical procedure Monday to remove an infected bursa sac from his left knee.
    Colts president Bill Polian announced the procedure, described as routine, on Monday night. Polian said the team’s medical staff expects Manning to have “a full and complete return to action” in four to six weeks. Colts training camp begins July 25.

    That didn't hurt half as much when I read it.

    I read the title of this thread before clicking on it expecting the worst from some Anti-Manning fan.

    I had a strange feeling it was going to be something like this.

    If he'd had this procedure before 2006, I'd have bet a hundred the surgeon was Tom Brady.

    He's had bursa sac problems since college. Only Spurrier has given him more pain.

    John Kruk just heaved a big sigh of relieve and doesn't know why

    I was hoping it wasn't an Onion headline come true.

    Right you are, HP. The bursa sac became sorely inflamed toward the end of his senior season, and by the time UT faced the Huskers in the Orange Bowl in '98, he had had it drained a few times.
