Colts QB Peyton Manning was in the team's locker room on Thursday and met with the local media, saying he is unsure if he'll be able to play this season, but is planning on seeing doctors again soon for the next check-up on his injured neck.

Manning said he will see doctors on Dec. 1, at which time he'll be able to determine if he's able to return to play this season. The quarterback said he's still feeling the affects of the offseason surgery on his neck, but that he is improving.

"I kind of go a week at a time, try to get a little better each week," Manning said. "Still have some restrictions on what I'm allowed to do. I'm still positive about things improving. I still have some work to do."

The future Hall of Famer has not played a down this season after never missing a game in his entire career before 2011. He is hopeful to return to the field by the end of the Colts season, but told reporters he is unsure if that will happen.

"There's really not a schedule and there's really not a timeline," the quarterback said of his rehab work. "It's sort of how I am at different checkpoints. I really think I would say the first of December is probably the next check point. That will be three months from the surgery. See where I am from the strength standpoint at that time, from a conditioning standpoint."
