John Elway, one month removed from his first Super Bowl victory, had minor surgery on his right shoulder yesterday and should recover within six weeks. "It was routine, and it was successful," Broncos spokesman Paul Kirk said. Elway, who has not said whether he will return for his 16th NFL season, reportedly had said he would not have the surgery if he planned to retire. He will have better range of motion and less pain when he throws, Denver trainer Steve Antonopulos said.

INDIANAPOLIS - The Peyton Manning era in Indianapolis is expected to end Wednesday, according to a report. Citing anonymous sources, ESPN reported Tuesday that the Colts plan to hold a news conference to announce the long-expected decision. Manning is expected to attend. Team owner Jim Irsay and Manning's agent, Tom Condon, did not immediately respond to messages left by The Associated Press. Manning turns 36 later this month, and missed the entire 2011 season after a third neck surgery.

It figured that once they suspended running back Eric Dickerson for conduct detrimental to the team, the Colts would finally win one. On the road, against a team with a shot at the playoffs. Indianapolis - which scored 24 points, all on field goals, in its previous five games - defeated the New York Jets, 28-27, in East Rutherford, N.J., where it was rainy, windy and cold. The Colts are 1-9. New York, which now must play four of its final six games on the road, is 5-5. Then again, Indy has beaten the Jets in five of the last six meetings, and three straight at the Meadowlands.

INDIANAPOLIS - Reggie Wayne will always remember last night's catch. The man with the expiring contract caught a 1-yard touchdown pass from Dan Orlovsky with 19 seconds left, giving the Colts their only lead of the game in a 19-16 victory over AFC South champion Houston. It's the second straight win for the Colts (2-13), who will have to fight off St. Louis and Minnesota for the No. 1 overall draft pick. Orlovsky, who played the last two seasons with Houston, also won his second straight game after losing his first nine NFL starts.

Rumors, innuendo and all that sort of rigamarole aside, the Eagles sternly maintain that they were in no way deceived by the Colts into believing that guard Ron Solt was more healthy than he has turned out to be. Solt, acquired in a trade with the Colts, has been forced to miss all but two practices and one quarter of a game in 2 1/2 weeks because of the tendinitis he suffers in both knees after offseason surgery. He will not practice at all this week, and will be examined by knee specialist Dr. Robert Kerlan, the Rams' team physician, when Los Angeles comes to town for Sunday's game.

The Colts are bruised and battered. "I've never been around a team that has had to deal with more injuries," coach Lindy Infante said. "And that includes at the high school level. " They're dinged and depleted. "We haven't been able to field the same 11 players any two weeks in a row," director of football operations Bill Tobin said. "That has hurt our continuity. " They're hurtin' for certain. "We seem to get a few guys back, then we lose a couple more," Infante said.

A lot of local football fans would have a hard time telling you who plays center for the Eagles. And, they'd have an even harder time telling you who snaps the ball for Indianapolis, which takes on the Birds in front of a national TV audience tonight. But he's none other than Ray Donaldson, who, at 31, is entering his 11th season with the Colts. Donaldson, who has been a Pro Bowl starter for the last three years, has never missed a game due to injury. In fact, the only starts he's missed came in 1987 during the players strike.

The Colts have won four games this season. Three of them were by the same score - 9-6. If there's one thing Indianapolis does well, it is kick field goals. Or more precisely, settle for them. Dean Biasucci kicked two more yesterday against the Giants, both in the second quarter, from 21 and 26 yards. Last week, he kicked three, including the game-winner in overtime, against the Jets. But this time, also in Giants Stadium, it wasn't enough. The Giants (10-3) clinched a playoff spot with a 20-6 victory.

CLEANING out the Colts front office may be only the start of the changes in Indianapolis. Team owner Jim Irsay fired team vice chairman Bill Polian and his son, Chris, the Colts' general manager yesterday. He said there was a good chance coach Jim Caldwell will be back next season, but his evaluation was not over. He also said he must decide whether a healthy Peyton Manning and a new quarterback can coexist in the same locker room, and which veteran free agents come back next year.

The Indianapolis Colts have lost their Edge, opening the way for a little-known back who just happens to hold the Pennsylvania high school record for career rushing yards. It will be James Mungro and not Edgerrin James behind Peyton Manning when the Eagles play the Colts at Veterans Stadium on Sunday. James and his No. 1 backup, Ricky Williams, are injured and will not play. "I think they're still going to try to run the ball a little bit," Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Johnson said yesterday.

LIKE ANY PLAYER on a high school football field, Rasheed Bailey used to harbor those big thoughts. He'd catch himself daydreaming about playing in large, loud college football stadiums at Penn State, Ohio State, Michigan, Oregon, Notre Dame. Then the bubble would burst, reality would seep in and he'd look around to find no one knocking. Bailey played for Roxborough High School, in the tough-and-tumble Philadelphia Public League on Friday afternoons. As a tight end. In a Wing-T offense that primarily ran the ball.

After spending 10 years with the Eagles and signing with the Indianapolis Colts last month, Trent Cole and Todd Herremans will not need to wait long to return to Philadelphia. The Colts will visit the Eagles for the preseason opener in August, the first of the team's four-game slate announced Thursday. The other opponents are the Baltimore Ravens, Green Bay Packers, and New York Jets. The dates and times will be announced later. The Eagles will not play the New England Patriots, which means they will not have joint practices with the defending Super Bowl champions after the two teams worked together during the last two preseasons.

LeSean McCoy has millions of reasons to be happy about being traded to the Buffalo Bills. It wouldn't be fair to say that the former Eagles running back's contentment rests solely on money, but the new contract the Bills gave McCoy should make it easier for him to head to Buffalo. In fact, that's what McCoy did Sunday after The Inquirer reported he and the Bills agreed upon a five-year contract that will be signed when last week's trade with the Eagles is finalized on Tuesday when the new league year opens.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - There were the requisite hugs and handshakes in the New England Patriots' locker room Sunday night, but the celebration of their sixth AFC championship with the Bill Belichick-Tom Brady coach-quarterback combination seemed to occur with almost a restrained excitement. The tone might have been set during the trophy presentation, when Belichick played off one of his phrases from earlier this season: "We're on to Seattle. " The Patriots have become the gold standard of the NFL, and their consistency has made events like the 45-7 win over the Indianapolis Colts at Gillette Stadium seem like a television rerun.

THE PICK I would not be at all surprised if Dallas, 6-0 on the road, won this and then went home next week and lost to the Colts, giving the Eagles hope for a backdoor playoff route. But I won't predict that. Last week, I thought the Birds were ready to make a statement. Their defense actually was ready, though their offense most emphatically was not. I still think this is a playoff team and a solid group that doesn't let last week intrude on this week, which is important, given that the previous four teams to lose to the Seahawks went on to lose the next week, as well.

IT'S ALWAYS funny until somebody gets hurt. Colts running back Trent Richardson and special-teams returner Josh Cribbs - both former Browns players - have vowed to dive into the Dawg Pound if they score against Cleveland on Sunday. That's like wearing a Cowboys jersey at an Eagles game. You can do it, but things might get ugly. Browns head coach Mike Pettine - who coached at North Penn and William Tennent high schools - is pretty sure Richardson and Cribbs won't get a warm welcome.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 7 of the 2014 season. Watch 'em roll Carson Palmer, QB, Cardinals at Raiders. With a 250-yard, two-TD, zero-INT performance in his return last week, Palmer signaled that he can be trusted in your lineup. Justin Forsett, RB, Ravens vs. Falcons. Operating mostly under the radar, Forsett has gained the fourth-most rushing yards in the league, with a whopping 6.4 yards-per-carry average. Though Bernard Pierce is sharing carries, Forsett is clearly the alpha back in Baltimore.

THE NARRATIVE from the first two come-from-behind victories of the Eagles' 2014 season goes like this: The pace of their offense wears out opposing defenses. They get tired, they get confused, they miss assignments and ultimately fail to defend plays they had no problem defending in the first half of games. That's how the Eagles were able to cover 42 yards in four plays over the final 1 minute, 56 seconds of Monday night's 30-27 victory over the Colts, setting up Cody Parkey's game-winning field goal.

INDIANAPOLIS - For much of the first half, the Eagles' defense looked as if it was determined to revitalize the career of the Colts' struggling running back, Trent Richardson, and his sidekick, ex-Giant Ahmad Bradshaw. Since the Colts acquired Richardson early last season from the Cleveland Browns for a first-round draft pick, he has not come anywhere close to living up to expectations. He averaged only 2.9 yards per carry in 14 games last season, and had only 20 yards on six carries in the Colts' season-opening loss to the Denver Broncos.

INDIANAPOLIS - It is important to note, at this juncture, that the Eagles very much are a work in progress. They have a quarterback with less than a full season's worth of starts. They are inexperienced on the defensive line. They rebuilt their receiving corps. They addressed the porous defensive secondary, but they could not upgrade it overwhelmingly. They lost three of their top six offensive linemen to injury or suspension, and the offensive line was their best unit.
