The New York Giants are set to face the Pittsburgh Steelers in a preseason on Saturday. Giants quarterback Eli Manning, who cut his forehead in a game against the New York Jets is sitting out to get more time to recover. It took twelve stitches to close a three-inch cut on the left side of Manning’s forehead. It was not deemed a serious injury but Manning was uncomfortable wearing a helmet over the wound.

Manning has been attending practice but Giants coach Tom Coughlin decided to sit him out on Saturday against the Steelers. Preseason games are supposed to provide rookies and players seeking a spot in the team roster to prove themselves. Players like Manning should be spending less playing minutes in preseason games, avoiding any injuries prior to the beginning of the regular season. Preseason games provide a testing ground for set plays to be executed. Team chemistry is also developed at this stage.

Fortunately for the Giants, Manning’s injury was not be serious.
