Irsay: Manning may miss entire season

Colts' owner Jim Irsay announced Monday morning that Peyton Manning may miss the entire 2011 season.

From ProFootballTalk:

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.

The Patriots have placed Rob Gronkowski on injured reserve, officially ending the injured tight end's season. 

The Patriots have added running back D.J. Foster to the 53-man roster. 

Gronkowski underwent surgery on his back Friday in Los Angeles. There was some hope he might be able to return if the Patriots reached the Super Bowl, but this move ends that.
