Another Report Says Peyton Manning Was In Pads Last Week, Throwing To Colts WRs And RBs

Last week, we reported on some credible rumors that Peyton Manning was back in pads and throwing balls to wide receivers. This wasn't done during practice, but was rather part of his ramped up rehab. Later in the week, Colts wide receiver Austin Collie said those rumors weren't true.

Now, Jay Glazer of FOX Sports is saying the rumors were indeed true:

PManning worked w WRs and RBs after practice this week, told he had pads on. It was after practice was over, but he's pushing to get back

Makes you wonder if Collie was lying to Indianapolis Star reporter Mike Chappell last week when he said that Peyton throwing to the wideouts 'didn’t happen.' Whether he did or not, the positive here is Peyton is throwing. In pads.

The next step is that he will, hopefully, return to the practice field before the end of the year. If he does not, his future in the NFL will be in doubt.
