Colts release a statement on Peyton Manning situation

The biggest news of the weekend is certainly Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning being listed in a report that says he had HGH delivered to his house in 2011. During that time, Manning’s career with the Indianapolis Colts was just coming to an end.

Due to the report, the Colts have released a statement talking about the report. This could be the best thing for them simply because Manning could have been under the care of doctors with these substances during his time in Indianapolis as well.

“We’ve been made aware of the recent Al Jazeera report concerning Peyton Manning and find it utterly ridiculous,” the Colts said according to Pro Football Talk. “We are thoroughly familiar with Peyton’s tireless work habits, his medical history, and, most importantly, his integrity. Peyton played the game in Indianapolis for 14 years the right way. He never took any shortcuts and it would be absurd to suggest he would have taken prohibited performance enhancing drugs. We also note that the ‘source’ of this allegation has since recanted his story. The entire Indianapolis Colts organization and the Irsay family hope this crude effort to besmirch Peyton’s reputation will not be permitted to tarnish the legacy of a great Colt.”

This has certainly become a pretty hot button topic and will be talked about for the next few weeks. Be sure to stay with Campus Sports for all the latest information on Manning.
