Peyton Manning played past month with a torn quad in NFL General Posted January 12, 2015 Manning's still got another year left in him. Keep in mind he had 39 touchdowns this year and had another stellar season. He needs to rest up big time, go see Cutcliffe for his tune up and come back next year. However, the Broncos cannot rely on him as much and they need to limit the amount of attempts he has, especially in the earlier part of the season (against weaker teams especially). The injuries are starting to mount now, but I hope he thinks this one through and comes back. We shouldn't be hearing a decision for awhile. Of all people, he's not the one to come and make a rash decision.
