A day after hurting himself in a preseason game against the New York Jets, New York Giants quarterback is feeling the discomfort of twelve stitches on his forehead from their Monday night football game. Initial X-ray results showed no concussions but head injuries like these are given the attention to ensure player safety for the short term and long term. Manning is currently undergoing a battery of tests to make sure that it is not a serious head injury.
Giants coach Tom Coughlin is uncertain if Manning will play on Saturday night. It may not be a major injury but the helmet could come in contact with the head wound.
Manning sustained a three-inch cut on the left side of his forehead when he collided head-on without his helmet with either Brandon Jacobs or Jim Leonhard of the Jets. His helmet came off following a hit from Jacobs that and Jets linebacker Calvin Pace.
Manning was pulled out of the game at the 10:45 mark of the first half. Replacement Jim Sorgi took over with three touchdown passes to Victor Cruz on the way to a 31-16 Giants victory.
