Eli Manning (shoulder) took about half of the first team snaps during practice today. He is listed as questionable for Week 2.
Manning will be a game-time decision for Week 2.
My opinion is that with Eli Manning, the Giants have a better chance of winning, but it may help the team in the long term if they let him sit out a week.
Sure the Giants are definitley considering resting Manning’s arm this week, but in my opinion, the Giants cannot afford to fall to 0-2 at this point.
Besides, why take a player out who’s on fire. He had his best career game last week, completing 28 of 41 attempts while firing 4 touchdowns, including three to Plaxico Burress.
In other words, Osi Umenyiora (leg) also returned to practice today. He was supposed to miss a month, I don’t know anything else on him right now.
