Broncos' John Fox looking forward to healthier Peyton Manning
“A lot was made of the neck and the surgeries. But in reality, it’s a nerve situation, and it takes a while for nerves to grow,” Fox said at the NFL scouting combine. “He’s getting better every day. I think he’ll be, health-wise, he’ll be even better this year.”
The rehab process isn’t over — and might never be for the 36-year-old quarterback — but Fox said he thinks this spring and summer should be markedly different for the four-time MVP.
“He’ll have a full offseason for his whole body to get ready, not just the arm, the neck and some of those rehab things,” Fox said. “He can actually work out now. I think he’ll just get stronger and better.”
Okay, Fox, we'll buy it: Manning will be stronger and better in 2013.
