WR Mario Manningham on Thursday had not yet been given medical clearance to practice, and it appears as if the big-play receiver is going to be doubtful to play in Sunday’s NFC East meeting with the Eagles.
Manningham sustained a concussion in last Monday night’s victory over the Rams. Without him, the Giants will have to scramble to find a replacement at a position already lacking depth with the news this week that Domenik Hixon will miss the remainder of the season with a torn ACL.
The options to start alongside Hakeem Nicks are second-year player Victor Cruz— who made his first two NFL receptions last week—and Brandon Stokley, the 35-year old veteran who was signed last week. The other receivers on the roster are Devin Thomas and rookie Jerrel Jernigan.
