    Since his return from career-threatening neck surgeries in 2011, Peyton Manning has maintained a stoic disposition when discussing his status. No injury was too serious, and nothing would prevent him from regaining his form among the NFL's best quarterbacks.

    Now that he has the stats to prove himself right, Manning is ready to admit he's far from 100 percent healthy.


    In an interview with MMQB's Peter King, the Broncos quarterback admitted he does not have any feeling in his fingertips:


    "I can't feel anything in my fingertips. It's crazy. I've talked to a doctor recently who said, Don't count on the feeling coming back. It was hard for me for about two years, because one doctor told me I could wake up any morning and it might come back. So you wake up every day thinking, Today's the day! Then it's not."

    How crazy is that?


    The guy's destroying records and still tearing it up at his age. No doubt one of the greatest football players to play the game.


    Even if your not a fan of the Broncos and Manning it wouldn't hurt taking in one of their games this year and watching greatness in action ...we won't see another like Manning again.

    Dang..

    That sucks. No matter what, he's still one of the greats though. I love to see him on the field. He's like a General out there commanding his troops. Truly a fabulous spectacle of leadership and talent.

    Peyton, no need to play anymore. Save your spine. No need getting hit and losing more feeling in your arm.

    Good to see you around again, Mardy. Usually the only Broncos fan around these parts.

    This is good info. Now I can push him even farther down my fantasy football rankings.

    Nerves are so weird. Today it's his fingers, tomorrow it could be his peen. You've already got the ring, man, just retire.

    I was NEVER a Colts or Broncos fan but I have ALWAYS been a Peyton Manning fan. My absolute #1 favorite QB in the NFL.

    No wonder he was so indifferent about deflategate. He can't exactly comment on the "feel" of a football

    I gained a lot of respect for him and his fam after watching the ESPN documentary "The Book of Manning":

    Good watch if you have a little bit of time. His Dad is awesome.
