Colts Keeping Manning Active So He Can Practice
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- The Indianapolis Colts will keep Peyton Manning on the active roster so he can practice later this season, though it remains unlikely Manning will play in a regular-season game.

Bill Polian, the team's vice chairman, told radio listeners Monday night that he would not necessarily want Manning playing behind their banged-up offensive line. Injuries have decimated the line, forcing the Colts to insert three new starters and move a fourth starter since opening day.

The only player who has started in the same place every week is Pro Bowl center Jeff Saturday.

And with an 0-8 mark, it doesn't look like the Colts will be making a playoff run.

But Polian wants Manning to practice so he can determine whether he's recovered from September's neck surgery.
