Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay said Monday morning at a meeting for Super Bowl donors that his team doesn't expect Peyton Manning to play again until the 2012 season.
Irsay said it was possible Manning would practice in December, but he is not expected to play this season, media outlets in Indianapolis reported.
Irsay later tried to clarify his comment with a post to his Twitter page at 10:28 a.m. ET, making it clear he didn't say Manning would definitely miss the rest of the season.
