Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning will have his postseason neck exam Monday, ESPN’s Jeff Legwold reports.
The Broncos don’t anticipate any issues with the exam, as Manning has already passed the required exit physical given to all members of the team in the days following their Super Bowl loss to the Seattle Seahawks, according to Legwold.
During the playoffs, Manning’s future in the NFL appeared to be in question after reports surfaced that his offseason neck exam would determine if he could continue playing. Despite Manning’s insistence on returning for 2014, the Broncos have maintained that the annual exam is the last formality remaining.
The exam is built into Manning’s contract, and Legwold reports the Broncos expect to hear Manning is good to go for the upcoming season.
