INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Peyton Manning’s doctors say his third neck surgery in 19 months went “very well, without complication” and that his prognosis for recovery is good.

Father and son doctors Robert Watkins Sr. and Robert Watkins Jr., who performed Thursday’s surgery, issued the statement Friday. The surgery was performed at Marina Del Rey Hospital in California. Manning’s previous two surgeries were at Northwestern Memorial in Chicago where Manning had both of his previous surgeries.

The doctors confirmed that Manning needed surgery for a herniated disk and that his rehab program will begin soon.

Rehab from the neck surgery is expected to take at least two months and could keep the four-time MVP out the entire season. Manning’s 227-game streak of starts, including the playoffs, will end Sunday at Houston.
