The injury that left New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning bleeding from the head has been caught on video and we have the footage in case you missed it.
If you’re sensitive to blood, we encourage you not to watch the video below as Manning was bleeding quite heavily from his head and face.
The injury occurred during the Giants preseason game on Monday August 16 against the New York Jets. After the hit took place, Manning was forced to leave the field for the remainder of the game while he received 12 stitches for his wound.
During a fourth-down play, Jets player Brandon Jacobs hit Manning’s helmet, knocking it off of his head. Immediate after his helmet was knocked loose, Eli was struck again by another Jets’ player Calvin Pace. As though that wasn’t enough, after he was hit by Pace, Manning was smoked by another player.
It’s very clear after watching the video that the hits were not malicious – Manning simply got caught in the middle of the play.
Giants fans need not worry about the condition of their top QB – he was back on the field this morning for a Wednesday practice with his team.
Pending tests, Manning could be back on the field for the Giants vs. Steelers game on Saturday.
