INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – The Colts will pay tribute to Peyton Manning when he returns to Indianapolis next week.
What exactly the team will do hasn’t been finalized yet.
Indy has usually celebrated the return of former longtime stars, such as Edgerrin James and Jeff Saturday, with a highlight reel of the players’ careers between the third and fourth quarters. USA Today reported Wednesday that the Colts will honor Manning during a pregame tribute.
Manning set Colts’ franchise records for attempts, completions, yards, touchdown passes and wins before being released in March 2012 and signing with Denver.
The Broncos (5-0) are one of three unbeaten teams left. The Colts (4-1), behind Andrew Luck, have sole possession of a division lead for the first time without Manning since October 1996.
