No, he's been throwing pretty well and teams are expecting him to be pretty much back to normal.
He hasn't thrown a football more than 25 yards at 'normal' speed in over a year.
10 months ago they said he wouldn't miss a game.
8 months ago they said he'd be back by the 4th game.
Word around here is that he's done. It's the same chronic, degenerative issue that pushed Cooper out of football in high school. Apparently one day he showed up to practice and just couldn't close his hands around the ball. Peyton has the same issue, but his is affecting his triceps. Which are kind of important to throwing a football.
I think he'll play next year, but I doubt he'll be the 4 time MVP carry a team to the playoffs Manning. There's a decent chance Tebow is actually a better passer at this point.
