The now viral photo of Peyton Manning wearing his helmet in the cold tub is explained.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – For Peyton Manning, “did not participate” doesn't tell the whole story.

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.

"He heard the calls, he'd repeat them to Julius and they were kind of – it was a way for them to take two hours and stay in the game plan," explained Gase, who laughed that he couldn't believe the photo made it onto CBS' broadcast last week.

They explained that during the game last week. The guy is a freak about preparation. That's one of the many reasons he'll be a first ballot hall of famer.
