KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) _ Tennessee quarterback Peyton Manning was admitted to an undisclosed hospital for treatment of an infection related to the ruptured bursa in his right knee, school officials said Monday.

Manning is expected to be hospitalized 2-3 days receiving bedrest and treatment in the form of IV antibiotics and physical therapy.

``Because of this condition, it is not likely Peyton will practice, at least to full degree, before the team breaks for Christmas Dec. 22,'' UT head trainer Mike Rollo said.

``The infection developed as the swelling from his knee migrated into his lower leg and ankle.''

The No. 3 Vols begin practice for the Orange Bowl on Thursday.
