Eli Manning sent home Wed with 'stomach bug'

The Giants began practicing on Wednesday for Sunday's NFC Championship Game in San Francisco, and did so without quarterback Eli Manning, who was, according to our Giants Rapid Reporter Alex Raskin, limited at practice and then sent home with a stomach illness.

Fortunately for Manning, it doesn't appear to be something that will affect him throughout the week and is instead an illness of the 24-hour variety.

Tom Coughlin is sounded relatively optimistic when discussing the issue.

"Hopefully it's a 24-hour deal and he'll be better tomorrow," Coughlin said via Raskin.

Sending Manning home is a smart move on Coughlin's part, because there's simply no reason to risk him passing the virus/bug/whatever on to the other members of the Giants.

I don't know the Giants travelling schedule, but please don't tell me that they are in San Fran ALREADY!!  Did that boy JUST fly to San Fran and NOW they are flying him back to NY to fly BACK to San Fran in 2 days?  WTF!!!  There are doctors and hospitals in San Fran and if you are afraid he may get others sick give him another room in another hotel.  Don't make him fly cross-country TWICE--lol.

Dismiss my comments if the team is NOT in San Fran right now.  Please agree with my rant if they ARE--lol.  Holy Crap!!
