(WVUE) -

The Colts will unveil a statue of former Newman star Peyton Manning in October outside Lucas Oil Stadium. Manning’s No. 18 jersey will be officially retired, and he will be inducted into the team’s Ring of Honor during halftime of the Colts game against the 49ers on Sunday, October 8.

“Peyton will always be a Colt,” said Colts Owner & CEO Jim Irsay to the Colts website. “This will be an event our city, state and Colts fans around the world can celebrate and be proud of.”

"I am humbled, and I am grateful to Jim and the Irsay family for this tremendous honor," said Peyton Manning.

Manning spent 13 seasons (1998-2010) as the starting quarterback in Indianapolis and completed 4,682-of-7,210 passes for 54,828 yards, 399 touchdowns and 198 interceptions for a 94.9 quarterback rating. He guided the Colts to their second Super Bowl victory (Super Bowl XLI) in franchise history
