“For his part, Peyton Manning insists he can't answer questions about Luck and April's draft. He has called the speculation about Luck disrespectful to his teammates, who are still trying to win games. "He (Bill Polian) and I have not had a conversation about the 2012 draft," Manning said Friday, referring to the Colts' vice chairman. "Bill keeps the players informed on a lot of things, but I've never been informed about who we're going to draft and I think that would be inappropriate." Polian said Friday talk about Luck is premature, and that the topic of Luck has not come up in conversations with Manning. "We haven't talked specifics," Polian said Friday. "We don't know where we're headed specifically. There's a long way to go until April." Still, Manning's slow recovery has touched off talk of the Colts' future and even his possible retirement. Polian said the plan for now is for Manning to be with the team in the future. "We've had discussions about it," Polian said Friday. "He knows what our plans are going forward. He understands what the situation is. We've got a lot of work to do to rebuild our team, and all of that is part and parcel of a larger plan. He's well aware of where we're going. I'm sure he's anxious to be part of it." Information from The Associated Press contributed to this report.
