Because it’s not enough that Peyton Manning already made it crystal clear he’s doing all he can to get back on the field, we now bring you Eli Manning issuing essentially carbon-copy comments to ESPN radio on Tuesday morning. You know, just for good measure.
“He’s doing well and he’s rehabbing and he’s gonna try to do, you know, everything he can to get back out there,” Eli Manning told Mike and Mike in the Morning. “Like any player, they want to get back on the field, they want to be with their teammates … and do whatever they can to get those guys ready.
“… He’s handling it as well … as expected, as he possibly can. And I know he’ll be working hard to try to get back out there.”
You still with us?
To be fair, when Eli Manning is asked repeatedly to comment on Peyton Manning’s recovery from neck surgery, he’s got more invested in the affair than the well-being of a Colts franchise that hasn’t suffered a losing season since 2001.
The bond between cops is strong, and Eli Manning’s primary concern is his brother’s longevity and health — regardless if that’s what matters to the masses.
