Sorgi trying to race back from shoulder injury

The plan all along for Jim Sorgi was to go from being the backup quarterback for one Manning to the other Manning.

But now Sorgi has concerns he might not make the New York Giants. Eli Manning wasn’t the only quarterback on the roster to get roughed up in the team’s first preseason game with the New York Jets. Manning suffered a three-inch gash on his forehead when his helmet popped off, and Sorgi left with a torn anterior capsule in his right shoulder, according to Tom Rock of Newsday.

The initial prognosis was that he could return in three to four weeks. Now, he’s fixing to be back in two weeks, and he wants to be on the field Monday.

"In my mind, I feel like I have to play next week," Sorgi said.

Per Rock, the Giants have a history of running with two quarterbacks on their 53-man roster. That means it’s between Sorgi and Rhett Bomar for the backup position. The longer Sorgi is sidelined, the more chances Bomar will have to audition for the job.
