Peyton Manning was icing his ankle last week in a cold tub during practice. With his helmet on. This photo of Manning went viral after it raised some questions and eyebrows. Gray Caldwell and Stuart Zaas of Denverbroncos.com released a statement explaining why Peyton was wearing his helmet and watching a tablet while icing his ankle.
Earlier this season, Manning and tight end Julius Thomas found themselves in the training room instead of practice on a Wednesday.
Not wanting to miss out on mental reps, Manning took matters into his own hands.
With his injured ankle in the cold tub, the quarterback kept his helmet on to listen to the play calls from Offensive Coordinator Adam Gase, who was on the practice field. Simultaneously, he watched game tape on his iPad.
Of course this is how Peyton Manning spends his time in the pool… pic.twitter.com/y9XTOJ68Xd
