Report: Eli Manning had neck X-ray after game

The Giants lost wide receiver Odell Beckham to a fractured ankle late in Sunday’s loss to the Chargers and they had some concern about an injury to quarterback Eli Manning as well.

Gary Myers and Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports that Manning had an X-ray of his neck after the game. Manning was kneed in the head by left tackle Ereck Flowers after taking a shot from Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa on the Giants’ final possession of the game.

The X-ray came back clean, per the report, and Manning didn’t appear to be in any pain while addressing the media after the game. He said he did not suffer a concussion.

Manning has never missed a game since taking over as the Giants’ starter during his rookie season in 2004 and Sunday’s game ran his consecutive regular season start streak to 204 games. With no Beckham and a subpar offensive line, there may be some more pain to come as he tries to keep it going through the rest of the 2017 season.

  1. People can hate on Eli but he has nobody to help him on that team. His oline is garbage, His best WR is a injury prone diva, no running game, and his head coach is a unlikeable jerk.

    You are dead right but you left out the part where his pathetically bad GM obviously has a substantial life insurance policy on Eli. There is no other explanation for standing pat on that o-line this past off season. How does Reese keep his job?

  3. The Giants may be 0-5, but on the bright side… They are only 3 wins away from being the best team in their own stadium.

  4. With the front office being a mess; with the coach questionable; with the team off to 0 and 5; with a Swiss Cheese O Line; with etc., and etc., I wonder what the Eli haters will do if next year he looks at this and asks himself, “Why”, and hangs them up while he can still speak coherently.

  5. Eli deserves a lot of blame for this loss. He has not beaten the Chargers since he spurned them in 2004. 45-24, 21-20, 38-16, and now 27-22. He insulted the franchise and it has had a chip on its shoulder ever since. And the Chargers did not just beat the Giants. They beat UP the Giants. Every other play my game feed read, “[INSERT GIANTS PLAYER] waz injured on the play.” And this was a pivotal game. An 0-4 opponent is beatable and I saw a path to 6-6 for the Giants if they took this one. There is no dominant team in the NFC East.
