Giants QB Eli Manning said he’s already doing football drills and even took about half of the practice reps on Monday.
“I feel 100%,” he said. “But the trainers tell me I’m not.”
The Giants had planned to be overly cautious with Manning, with Giants GM Jerry Reese even declaring his quarterback “out for the spring” two weeks ago. But Manning said his “goal from the get-go (was) to get back out there for that first (organized team activity session)” on May 28.
Manning's health will be key to his chances of bouncing back in 2014. He's learning a new offense and needs time to work with Rueben Randle, Odell Beckham and Jerrel Jernigan.
