    Really?
    It isn't that uncommon. A bone spur is nothing more than an overgrowth of bone that is typically caused by the body trying to heal an injury. In Manning's case it's due to the fusion. Which is actually a good sign because it shows that his body is healing itself, albeit going a little overboard. Typically bone spurs are never even noticed, give any problems or are even treated. However, if a vertebral bone spur grows inwards, towards the spinal canal, it may cause spinal stenosis and need treatment. Again though, the removal of such things are fairly "routine". Of course the removal of the spur growing away from the canal is more routine.

    Of course none of us are treating Manning so these are all good guesses, at best, but typically the greatest risk after having a spinal fusion is lack of mobility and the area that has been fused is actually stronger than it was before the surgery.

    Seems that way, but do you think he can't play with it? I'm sure he's going to pay when he's older no matter what, but can they do something that will palliate his pain so he can play a few more seasons?
