Biggs: Signs continue to point to Eli starting
Signs continue to point to New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning making his 83rd consecutive start, including the postseason, on Sunday against the Oakland Raiders.
Manning participated in the team’s walkthrough this morning at Giants Stadium, according to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News, a day after he practiced on his injured right foot. A team preparing to play David Carr probably would have had him running the show.
Manning is listed as questionable for the game, but there has been no word to this point that Rhett Bomar has been promoted from the practice squad to serve as a backup to David Carr. So signs continue to point to Manning giving it a go.
“We'll evaluate him every day,” Giants coach Tom Coughlin said on Friday. “If he gets to the point where the medical people think he can play and not be subject to injury, then chances are he will play. He's not going to go against the medical people, (but) he wants to play in the worst way.”
