No timetable for Manning's return

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- The Indianapolis Colts say franchise quarterback Peyton Manning had another neck surgery Thursday and there is no timetable for his return.

Manning had the procedure after undergoing more diagnostic tests and consulting with doctors earlier this week. The team did not provide details, but says it will keep the four-time league MVP on the active roster for now.

It's Manning's third surgery in the past 19 months. He had not fully recovered from a May 23 procedure to fix a nerve in his neck.

Manning had already been ruled out of Sunday's season opener at Houston, ending a streak of 227 consecutive starts including playoffs. It's the second-longest in league history behind only Brett Favre.
