Giants update on Manning injury with a quote from Eli

From the Giants:

Eli Manning suffered a three-inch laceration to the forehead. It required 12 stitches. Eli showed no signs of a concussion. He was x-rayed at the stadium. The x-rays were negative. Eli was sent home by the team's medical staff.

"I feel fine. I feel normal," Manning said. "The play was my fault. We had a run play with an option to throw a fade that I thought I might try, but Brandon was coming right up the middle. Sometimes you make a mistake and you get hit in the head. It's preseason. You learn from it. I'll be back as soon as I can. It's really not an injury. Nothing serious. I really feel like I could go back out and play right now if I had to."
