Peyton Manning is on target and there's plenty of zip on his throws at the Denver Broncos' first OTA workout.
Manning ran the offensive practice, lining up receivers, running
backs and even fellow quarterbacks during the Broncos' workout
Monday that marked the first time the media witnessed Manning
throwing the ball since last year's training camp.
Up until now, reporters have had to rely on his receivers for
updates on his progress from a series of neck operations. Manning
has refused to talk about it.
Manning was released by the Indianapolis Colts in March after he
missed the entire 2011 season because of a nerve injury that caused
weakness in his throwing arm. The only four-time MVP in league
history signed with Denver, leading to Tim Tebow's departure.
