Manning back at practice for 2nd time this week

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Peyton Manning was back at Colts practice Wednesday, the second time this week he was seen taking laps around the practice field.

The only four-time MVP in league history is expected to miss at least two months and possibly the entire season after having neck surgery to repair a herniated disk Sept. 8.

This past Monday was the first time he had been seen by reporters at practice since having his third neck surgery in 19 months.

He did nothing more than walk briskly around the indoor practice field while other Colts players worked out. It was the same scene Wednesday, except that Manning started his routine outdoors on a warm day in Indy. He has not talked with reporters.

Manning had started 227 consecutive games, including the playoffs, before missing the last two -- both of them losses by the Colts.
