Sports Illustrated's Peter King just talked with Indianapolis Colts head coach Tony Dungy over the phone regarding how much playing time Peyton Manning will receive next week against the Tennessee Titans.
According to Dungy, "Manning will play no more than a half." That means that Manning could see anything from one series to the entire first half. For our sake, hopefully he plays the entire first half. Do you know what else I'd like to see? I'd like to see Marvin Harrison play for the first time in months. His knee injury is healed, but he didn't play this week because he needed to work on conditioning still. Manning and Harrison may feel that one half of game action prior to the postseason would be valuable.
By the way, don't be surprised if Dawgs By Nature sounds like a Colts or Titans blog this week as much as it does a Browns blog. Everything needs to be scrutinized.
