Eli Manning woke up Saturday morning feeling good enough that he participated in the Giants' regular Saturday morning walkthrough at Giants Stadium - yet another sign that he will be good to go against the Raiders Sunday afternoon.
Manning, of course, practiced for the first time this week on Friday, taking about half the snaps with the first-team offense during the Giants' practice. If he had a setback overnight, the Giants probably wouldn't have allowed him to take the field Saturday morning. But, when Tom Coughlin addressed reporters on Friday, he said he would let Manning participate if he had "made some progress overnight."
"When he comes in in the morning we will see where he is," Coughlin said on Friday. "And if he is where I think he will be – made some progress overnight – he will come out and go through the jog through. I see no reason why he wouldn't do that if he can."
