Biggs: Manning testing out right foot at practice

Eli Manning is going to give it a go this morning, the New York Giants have announced.

The quarterback is expected to test out his right foot in practice after sitting out the last two days. Manning has a plantar fascia injury suffered last week at Kansas City.

The Giants have prepared backup David Carr for the possibility that he will start Sunday against the Oakland Raiders in the Meadowlands. The Giants are 16-point favorites in the game. Obviously, with Manning testing out his foot today, it increases the possibility he will play Sunday.

New York carries only Manning and Carr on the 53-man roster. If it is likely Manning will not play, the team will likely promote Rhett Bomar from the practice squad.

Stay tuned.
