Peyton Manning and his family will be in New York City to play a game for the first time in their careers at Yankee Stadium.
The Broncos quarterback, who has been in a coma since March 1, will miss the team’s first three games.
Manning will return to practice on Tuesday.
He is expected to be fully recovered by Wednesday.

— Man it up, Peyton Manning.
We love you.
Peyton Manning, wife Lara, daughter Malia and son Eli join Peyton and his daughter, Eli, at the Super Bowl, as the Broncos celebrate their Super Bowl XLIX victory over the Seattle Seahawks.
The Manning family, including Manning’s daughter Maliah, have traveled to New York from their home in Pahrump, Nev., where they are celebrating their first Super Bowl victory since 2001.
This year’s Super Bowl will be Manning’s first appearance in a Super Bowl.
He became the first quarterback in NFL history to score at least three touchdowns in consecutive games on Nov. 28, 1991, and then the first since Peyton’s father, Peyton Sr., did so in 1985.
Manning also set the record for most Super Bowl passes in a season on Sept. 7, 2013, as Denver beat Carolina 20-16.
Manning became the third player in NFL franchise history to throw three touchdowns against one team in the final game of a season in his fourth Super Bowl appearance.
“He’s one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL and the best quarterback to ever play the game,” Manning said after the Broncos’ 26-23 victory over Green Bay.
“It was just a great, great moment.”
Manning is one of 11 players on the list of NFL All-Pro nominees, along with Hall of Famers Cris Carter, Joe Montana and John Elway.
Manning is one-third of the vote, but has been the most prolific winner.
He has finished second to Elway in all three major awards, along the way receiving three Pro Bowl nods.
He finished with 3,824 passing yards and 30 touchdowns, the second-most in NFL annals behind only Brett Favre.
On a night when he was joined by Peyton, his daughter Malias, his wife Lara and his sister, Eli to watch the Broncos and the New Orleans Saints win Super Bowl LI, he had some thoughts.
I feel really lucky to be here, he said.
The Broncos beat the Seahawks in Seattle on Sunday night to finish with the best record in the AFC.
While the Broncos will miss Manning, they have a chance to build on their second-round win over the Seahawks, which was Manning’s fourth Super Bowl victory.
They also have a shot at a second straight Super Bowl title.
The Super Bowl is traditionally Manning’s last game, and the Broncos were set to play their next game against the Carolina Panthers, who also were set for their next matchup with the Broncos.
But the NFL announced Sunday that the Super Bids were moved to a Thursday night date, leaving only the third and final game on Sunday.
The NFL has a three-week window to decide whether to keep the two games.
The Broncos also lost to the Carolina Hurricanes in the first round.
