EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -Eli Manning will start at quarterback for the New York Giants against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday after bruising his shoulder a week ago.
Manning's status had been uncertain because of his injury against Dallas last Sunday. The Giants announced about an hour before gametime there would be no changes to their starting lineup, meaning Manning would start his 41st consecutive regular-season game.
Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora also was in the lineup after bruising a knee in the 45-35 loss to Dallas.
Manning walked on the field at Giants Stadium a little more than two hours before kickoff. He threw softly with backup Jared Lorenzen about 15 minutes later and then started throwing to his receivers.
Manning threw a variety of passes, including a couple of 20-yard crossing patterns and some fade passes to the corner of the end zone. He later spent time talking with Packers quarterback Brett Favre.
