Tom Brady on Manning Injury - "He'll be playing"

  Following Tom Brady's drubbing of the Buccaneers on Sunday (EDIT: Apparently it wasn't on Sunday, read comments below), he gave a press conference in which he was asked about Peyton Manning's, the $90 Million man, chances of playing when the Colts season opens against the Texans. With a smile on his face he expressed disbelief that there was a chance that Manning wouldn't play. "He'll be playing, you gotta be kidding me. I know Peyton he's as tough a competitor as there is" Brady said. He recounted what he once heard long time Colts head coach Tony Dungy say that Peyton would have "to be dead or something not to play."

    This all sounds good news, especially after the surprising signing of previous divisional rival Kerry Collins to back up Manning with only 2 weeks of preseason left. What appears most likely, is that Manning will indeed play. It seems if he can stand up and hold a ball, he will play. The surprising signing is probably in case of further injury, or if the current injury severely damages the quality of 18's throwing.

Expect to seem some form of Peyton at the line of scrimmage in 2 weeks, lets just all cross our fingers that its the Peyton we all expect.
