Reports Vary on How Hurt Manning Is

Manning hurt

It depends on who you believe as to how long Giants QB Eli Manning will be out for.  Chris Mortensen from ESPN is reporting tonight that Manning has a slightly separated shoulder, and that he will be out for at least a month.  Manning was injured during Sunday nights wild 45-35 loss to the Cowboys in Dallas.  According to Mortensen, doctors have said that Manning will not need surgery, but will get a second opinion from orthopedic specialist Dr. James Andrews in Alabama.

Now the Giants are not buying into the ESPN report, and have come out and stated that Manning does not have a separated shoulder.   “I don’t know where that report comes from. I don’t know where the information supposedly was found,” Coughlin said  “We are just going to have to see how it is — whether he can practice and play on a daily basis. As for the month, quite frankly, if it is not possible this week, then it will be another week.”

Right now the official position from the Giants is that Manning is listed as day-to-day with a contusion (bruise) of the AC joint and spokesman Pat Hanlon said “Don’t be shocked if you see him playing on Sunday.”  As for running back Brandon Jacobs, the news is not as good, as he has a sprained MCL of his right knee, and that he will evaluated on a week to week basis.  Jacobs also was hurt in the Sunday night loss to the Cowboys.
