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.

No need for the offensive language. Eli deserves all the respect. Super Bowl Champ and is having an excellent year. I actually hate the G-men but Eli has earned my respect and should be respected by anyone who knows anything about the NFL

Clearly, this FatWhiteChicks person must be some 11 year-old punk kid who doesn't know his a$$ from his elbow....but posting such obscene language in such BIG font must make him feel BIG.....idiots like this really are fun to laugh at.
