Ryan Nassib came out for the kneel-downs at the end of the Giants' 36-7 blowout victory Sunday, which wasn't necessarily unusual. But the fact Manning was the last one out of the trainer's room following the game was unusual. Manning was getting looked at on the sideline by team medical personnel during the second half, but after the game he insisted nothing was wrong. "Just getting iced down on some things," Manning said, somewhat cryptically. "Nothing serious." Reported by ESPN.com
As ESPN.com's Dan Graziano notes, if he's got any kind of injury that would limit him in practice, we should know no later than Wednesday, because they'd have to list him on the injury report. As we saw last week with Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys, teams aren't always eager to list their quarterbacks on injury reports, but the league has made it clear that it's going to be vigilant. At this point, Manning deserves the ultimate benefit of the doubt, as he hasn't missed a start since becoming the Giants' starting quarterback in 2004. It would be shocking news if he couldn't play Sunday against Washington. But keep an eye on it as the week goes along. Could be nothing, could be something. So stay tuned.
