Despite taking twelve stitches to the forehead after a nasty hit during Monday’s Giants-Jets exhibition game, Eli Manning is feeling fine and would return to the game if it weren’t preseason.
“I feel fine. I feel normal. The play was my fault. We had a run play with an option to throw a fade that I thought I might try, but Brandon was coming right up the middle. Sometimes you make a mistake and you get hit in the head. It’s preseason. You learn from it. I’ll be back as soon as I can. It’s really not an injury. Nothing serious. I really feel like I could go back out and play right now if I had to.”
And Giants fans breathe a little easier.
