Manning has MRI on right leg, results to come

New York Newdsay - [Full Article]

Eli Manning is undergoing an MRI on his right leg this afternoon and the result should be announced later today after team physician Dr. Russ Warren and Manning have discussed them.

Manning has some swelling and soreness this morning. He came to the Giants' complex for treatment (ice and stimulation) and went through what is believed to be a modified strength program. He also attended team meetings.

Manning walked into the locker room with neither a boot, a crutch or much evidence of heavy tape on his right foot. The only obvious sign of an injury was a slight limp.

“I don’t think it’s nothing to be worried about. It will be getting rid of the soreness,” Manning said.

It's probably a good sign that Manning didn't go straight for an MRI this morning and felt well enough to come into the complex. Most injured players -- including tight end Kevin Boss today -- have their MRIs done in the morning.

On the other hand, it's a bad sign that after examining him and treating him, the Giants still felt it necessary to send him out for the MRI.
