ESPN: Colts QB Peyton Manning had a staph infection that forced
doctors to operate on his knee a second time this offseason,
according to a report in Friday's Indianapolis Star. The Colts,
however, issued a statement Friday afternoon to "provide accuracy
with respect to medical facts" which said that the second
procedure had nothing to do with the infection. "Peyton Manning
developed swelling in his left pre-patella bursa in late
February," the Colts said in a statement released in conjunction
with the club's physicians. "The swollen bursa was treated
conservatively beginning in February with drainage and anti-
inflammatory medication. "The first signs of infection occurred
while he was in New Orleans in July. It should be noted that
infection developed prior to any surgery. Upon manifestation of
the signs of infection, he immediately had surgery to remove the
bursa sac. Concurrently, he was treated aggressively with
antibiotics, and the infection was eliminated.
