Tuesday, August 26, 2008. (AP) -- Peyton Manning is finally healthy enough to start practicing with the Indianapolis Colts.
Coach Tony Dungy says the team activated the two-time NFL MVP on Tuesday, clearing the way for him to begin working out with his teammates. Manning had been on the physically unable to perform list since training camp opened after surgery to remove an infected bursa sac from his left knee July 14.
He didn't appear with the team until last week when he lobbed a few passes to teammates as the Colts practiced at the new Lucas Oil Stadium.
Manning was expected to go through team drills for the first time Tuesday afternoon.
