Re: 2011 Indianapolis Colts discussion
I don't think it's an issue that will lead to his retirement. As far as I understand he's just waiting for nerves to heal in the area, and it's not a matter of if they'll heal, but when. And for some reason (obviously a cause for concern) his haven't healed yet. But factor in the lockout and not having access to the Colts medical staff and it shouldn't be too surprising.
The Colts are in a ton of trouble if Peyton can't go. The last few years they've become entirely too much Peyton-dependent, and if he can't go for an extended stretch I can't really see them being competitive.
