INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Colts coach Jim Caldwell does not expect Peyton Manning to practice at the start of training camp.

The coaches have not had a chance to see where Manning is more than two months after having neck surgery.

Caldwell says that Manning is “not ready right now” and that the team will “turn him loose” when he is ready to play. Manning also is trying to negotiate a new long-term contract, which should help Indy re-sign some of its own free agents.

The Colts report to training camp Sunday at Anderson University. Practice begins Monday.
