Nate Davis of USA Today reports that Broncos QB Peyton Manning‘s “velocity hasn’t quite returned after multiple neck surgeries” but Manning “does look sharp and accurate with intermediate throws.”
“I continue to rehab,” said Manning. “I have work to do and progress that I still need to make.”
Davis mentions that although Manning may not have the velocity he once had but toss a 35-yard touchdown to WR Demaryius Thomas during practice which just happened to beat Pro Bowl CB Champ Bailey.
Manning is still rehabbing the fused nerve in his neck, but it is really encouraging to hear that Manning is accurate on his throws after some reports came out that he was having troubles in that area. Fans should continue to monitor Manning’s progress into the preseason.
