Giants' Manning practices after heel injury

Posted: Updated:

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning returned to practice and showed no ill effects of the injured heel that kept him out of practice for two days.

Manning did the regular exercises with the team Friday, and at one point was leading sprints. He has been diagnosed with plantar fasciitis in his right heel.

Although Manning seemed to run a little gingerly, he did the regular stretching and squatting.

When practice began, reserve David Carr took the first five snaps with the starting unit. But Carr was quickly replaced by Manning, giving all indications that he would be ready to start Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders at Giants Stadium.

Manning has made 82 consecutive starts.
