Peyton Manning shows excellent arm strength following nerve injury
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Peyton Manning showed excellent arm strength while airing it out Monday as the Denver Broncos worked on deep throws.
The league's only four-time MVP is returning from a nerve injury that caused weakness in his throwing arm, forced him to sit out last season and led to his release from the Indianapolis Colts.
In the two previous practices that the media were allowed to watch, Manning looked good on short and intermediate passes but sometimes lacked oomph on the occasional deep ball.
Not this time. Some of his throws were actually too strong, sailing over receivers' heads.
In the 2-minute drill at the end, he hit a sliding Brandon Stokley with a sensational 40-yard pass, then faked the spike and found Eric Decker in the corner for the 5-yard TD.
