Colts to Honor Peyton Manning

Share Tweet Email

October 9, 2013 – When Peyton Manning returns to Indianapolis in 11 days for a prime-time showdown against his former team, he can expect a hero’s welcome at Lucas Oil Stadium.

And that will include a gracious reception from the Indianapolis Colts.

The Colts are planning a tribute for Manning to acknowledge his remarkable contributions during 14 seasons with the franchise, team owner Jim Irsay told USA TODAY Sports.

Details — including the extent of the tribute, which will likely occur during pregame festivities for the nationally-televised Sunday night game — are still being finalized.

“We’re going to have a great tribute to him,” Irsay said while in Washington for NFL owners meetings. “It’s going to be something where you go into it wanting to have a lot of fun, where you love Peyton as a Colt fan, but now we’re competing against him.”
