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.

Why are these Iggles fans even posting on this board? Your so called "Dream Team" was nothing but a joke.  I'm sure all the Iggle players are having a great time enjoying their vactions watching the Giants in the playoffs. Looking at their comments only goes to show you their intelligence level.  I can excuse your ignorance but cannot tolerate your stupidity. Next time you want to post a comment, take a moment and think of how bad you are making yourself look.
