Giants’ Manning undergoing more tests after suffering head injury
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - A bloodied Eli Manning was in some discomfort a day after receiving 12 stitches for a head wound.
While the Giants said Tuesday that Manning showed no signs of a concussion after suffering a three-inch gash to his head in a 31-16 win over the Jets on Monday night, the 29-year-old quarterback was undergoing a battery of tests to make sure he did not suffer a more serious head injury. His helmet knocked off and he was hit in the head.
“He did not talk too much about pain, but I don’t have a lot of information because any time you have an injury that is a head injury they are going to do all kinds of tests,” Coughlin said. “They are in the process of doing that right now.”
“We’ll wait and hear what the doctors have to say after all their examinations are concluded,” Coughlin said.
“He is going to go through the battery of tests that any player has who experiences any kind of a head injury,” Coughlin said. “They are not going to leave a stone unturned.”
Even if Manning is cleared to play, there is some concern his helmet could rub against the stitches and create a problem with the wound healing.
“Our medical people will make all of those decisions and the health and well-being will be first and foremost in terms of the decision to be made,” Coughlin said. “There is great deal of attention placed in this area (head injuries).”
Manning was hurt with 10:45 left in the second quarter when he opted to throw a pass on a run call without telling the rest of the offense.
