Denver Broncos fans can breathe a sigh of relief after quarterback and NFL MVP, Peyton Manning was given the all clear to play in the 2014 season.

Manning was undergoing a physical on a old neck injury from 2011 which could have forced the quarterback into an early retirement. However, according to multiple reports, the Broncos franchise player will be ready for a third straight season with Denver.

The five-time NFL MVP suffered the neck injury in 2011 when playing for the Indianapolis Colts and underwent spinal fusion surgery. Manning missed the entire 2011 season and joined the Denver Broncos for the 2012 season.

Manning set NFL passing records last season and propelled his team to the Super Bowl where they ultimately lost to the Seattle Seahawks in a blowout.

The veteran had revealed some concern for his neck prior to the Super Bowl which led to increased media speculation that he could retire.

In the week before the Super Bowl however, Manning commented on how well his body reacted to the surgery and that he felt like he could continue.

The Broncos will hope that Manning's good health continues as they aim to build on last season's success.
