Colts' owner Jim Irsay announced Monday morning that Peyton Manning may miss the entire 2011 season.
The Colts are 03, but their season is essentially over. Peyton Manning will not be coming back to save the team.
Irsay said the team would not move Manning to the injured reserve, citing an outside chance for a December return.
The star quarterback underwent an anterior fusion September 8. The Colts initially stated that Manning would miss at least two to three months.
