EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -Giants quarterback Eli Manning was at practice Wednesday, taking snaps and handing off as he tested his bruised right shoulder.
He was scheduled to throw later in the day.
Giants coach Tom Coughlin gave no indication whether Manning would play Sunday against the Green Bay Packers but said, ``I am encouraged by his progress.''
Coughlin also said Manning is not as sore as he was a few days ago and that the swelling in his shoulder had subsided.
Jared Lorenzen took snaps with the first team, and would make his first career start if Manning can't play.
Manning, who was hurt in the fourth quarter of Sunday night's season-opening 45-35 loss at Dallas, has started the last 42 regular season and playoff games for New York.
Coughlin said Manning's status is day-to-day.
``We'll take everything into consideration, realize that he wants to play and is extremely competitive, and at the right time, we'll make the proper call,'' Coughlin said.
Coughlin refused to set a deadline for Manning, who completed 28-of-41 passes for 312 yards and four touchdowns in the loss.
``We'll give him every opportunity,'' Coughlin said.
Coughlin also was encouraged by the injury report on defensive end Osi Umenyiora. He hurt a knee in the first quarter against Dallas. He also is being listed as day-to-day.
Halfback Brandon Jacobs will be out up to a month with a knee injury.
Kicker Lawrence Tynes did not practice Wednesday because of a calf injury. He is expected to kick on Thursday.
Coughlin said that free agent Josh Huston, who was barely beat out by Tynes in training camp, would be among his top choices if New York needed a new kicker this weekend.
