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.

It would be sad to see him all hunched over before the niners send him to an early retirement. Oh wait that is his brother.

Dont worry I got his battery pack ready he'll be all charged up and ready. Though you wont know it as his facial expression wont change. I bet even sick as a dog his expression doesnt change.  Bring it niners!

If Manning has a stomach flu virus, he'll get the cocktail that wipes that out and then he'll be on an IV to hydrate him. The worst he's probably going thru is a mild onset of a cold. He'll be well rested too considering this is the NFC Championship game.
