Manning calls Colo. shooting victims in hospital

DENVER (AP) - Denver Broncos quarterback Payton Manning is calling hospital victims of the Colorado theater shooting to lift their spirits.

A spokeswoman for the Medical Center of Aurora says that Manning spoke one-on-one by phone on Saturday afternoon with several patients brought there after the shooting.

Fifty-eight people were wounded after a gunman clad in riot gear opened fire in a crowded theater early Friday where "The Dark Knight Rises" was being shown. Twelve people have died in the massacre.

The four-time MVP signed with the Broncos this year after missing the 2011 season due to injury.
