Sports: Peyton Manning likely will never play football again, sources say
Indianapolis, Ind., USA

+Yahoo! News and the +Los Angeles Times report that Peyton Manning's football career is likely over, according to two sources close to the Indianapolis Colts quarterback with knowledge of his recovery from neck surgery.

Although the vertebrae in Manning's neck have healed as expected, which allowed him to start throwing again back in December, the same can't be said for the nerves in his arm, according to the sources. They say the velocity on his passes has not improved and possibly never will.

All of which, the sources say, indicates the four-time MVP will probably never play again.
