If you were not previously aware, Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay really likes twitter. He also really likes using incorrect punctuation and text-speak on twitter, but that's entirely beside the point. Earlier today, a number of outlets reported that Irsay himself said that Peyton Manning would be out for the entire season due to his neck injury. However, Irsay has taken to twitter to deny a portion of those reports, stating that Manning has a slight chance of returning in December and that he never claimed the quarterback was definitely out for the year.
Even if Manning recovers by December, it might be best for the Colts to just play it extra safe and keep him out for the year. At 0-3, there's almost no chance that they're going to be in playoff contention come December. And if they are magically in playoff contention come December, why take the ball out of the hot hand of Kerry Collins/Curtis Painter/Mystery Quarterback X?
