On if he can imagine his brother Peyton Manning playing with any team other than the Indianapolis Colts:
“It’d be tough. He’s been so important to this town. When he came to Indianapolis, they were not known for their football – it was truly a basketball town. He’s changed that image a little bit, and it would be hard to imagine him playing somewhere else. I know that when he was drafted to the Colts, he had his mind set that he would love to finish his career here. That’s a lot of peoples’ goals; you never know if that’s going to happen, but he wants to play football. He’s going to rehab and he’s going to work as hard as anyone to try and get back healthy. We just have to see what happens.”
