If the lockout ends in time to play preseason games, the backup quarterbacks will probably see the bulk of the action, but Manning should be 100% by the start of the regular season.
Even though the NFL has locked out its players, communication between teams and players in these cases is allowed. So, Manning was able to contact the Colts organization and their doctors before going to Chicago for the operation.
