INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Peyton Manning will not return to practice with the Colts until the doctors say he's 100 percent.

Bill Polian, the team's vice chairman, made the comments Monday night on his weekly radio show in Indianapolis.

Polian says Manning is doing "fine" and continues to recuperate from last Thursday's most recent neck surgery. Manning has had three surgical procedures on his neck in the past 19 months and remains on the team's active roster though he's expected to miss at least two months and possibly the entire season.

Manning will be on the team's active roster, Polian says, until the doctors say Manning cannot return this season.

Polian says he does expect Manning to return to the Colts at some point, though it may not be this year.
