Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is calling those victims of the Aurora theater shooting who are in the hospital 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.

Manning always seems to be the prototypical professional and again goes above and beyond to improve his relationship with his team’s community.
