The Colts' medical team has begun diagnostic testing of Manning, and specialists who have been following his case since its outset are also being consulted.
The Colts also announced Monday that the hiring of Jim Tressel as a game day consultant will be delayed six weeks, the length of time present and former Ohio State football players have been suspended by the NCAA for the school's violations connected to selling memorabilia.
