49ers Vs. Giants, 2012 NFC Championship Game: Eli Manning Misses Practice Wednesday Due To Illness

According to the New york Daily News’ Ralph Vacchiano, New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning did not participate entirely in practice on Wednesday due to an illness, which they hope won’t sideline him any further as he and his team prepare for the San Francisco 49ers this weekend.

Per Ralph Vacchiano on Twitter:

At this point in the season, you never want to miss any practice time, especially preparing for a game as important as the NFC championship game. On the other hand, some extra rest for a guy like Manning might do him some good, especially when it’s your third playoff game in a row.
