INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Peyton Manning and Colts owner Jim Irsay have returned to Indianapolis together on a plane amid reports that the team and the star quarterback will be parting ways.

Manning spoke briefly to a small group of reporters at the Indianapolis airport Tuesday night, but didn't address questions about his future with the Colts.

"We'll see y'all tomorrow," Manning said. "We're good. We'll talk tomorrow. We'll do it all right tomorrow."

Citing anonymous sources, ESPN reported earlier Tuesday that the Colts plan to hold a news conference to announce a long-expected decision that they will release the four-time MVP rather than pay him a $28 million bonus.
