Donovan McNabb is available again.
The Minnesota Vikings waived the 13-year veteran quarterback on Thursday, giving him the opportunity to sign with another team for the stretch run in a parting coach Leslie Frazier described as mutual.
Frazier pushed for the Vikings to trade a sixth-round draft pick this summer to the Redskins in exchange for McNabb.
McNabb went 1-5 as a starter, threw for four touchdowns and completed five passes of 25-plus yards.
Indianapolis quarterback Peyton Manning will increase the intensity of his workouts, although he has not been cleared to practice.
In a statement released by the Colts, Dr. Robert Watkins says the fusion performed on Manning’s neck has achieved “firm fixation.”
