EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -Eli Manning took some snaps with the New York Giants' first unit on Friday for the first time all week, but the team is still cautious about the fourth-year quarterback's injured throwing shoulder.
Manning split time with Jared Lorenzen, who will make his first NFL start on Sunday if Manning is unable to. Lorenzen played the final series of last Sunday's 45-35 loss at Dallas.
Manning was hurt in the fourth quarter when Cowboys linebacker Anthony Spencer tackled him on a failed two-point conversion attempt.
After being restricted to throwing on the sidelines earlier in the week, Manning threw to receivers on Friday. He was listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Green Bay.
``He seemed to throw the ball pretty well,'' coach Tom Coughlin said. ``If you really watch closely, he did the smart thing. He loosened up pretty good and started to get into the velocity throws a little bit later on. He has actually thrown the ball on the side pretty well, even from day one.
``The key term is, how is he going to be in the morning and then what are the medical people going to say?''
Defensive end Osi Umenyiora also practiced for the first time since irritating cartilage in his left knee on the Giants' first defensive series against Dallas.
``When it first happened I thought I was going to be out for a while, but it doesn't look like I am going to be out for that long right now,'' he said. ``I feel pretty well. I feel actually all right.''
Umenyiora was listed as probable for Sunday's game.
