A second opinion on Eli Manning's injured right shoulder was the same as the first opinion: It's a sprained A-C joint and if he can tolerate the pain, he can play.

The Giants sent Manning's MRI to Dr. James Andrews -- a noted orthopedic surgeon who operates out of Birmingham, Alabama -- and he informed them today that he agreed with their initial diagnosis. He saw no structural damage in Manning⁈⁚s shoulder, and saw no reason to think he could damage it by playing this week.

So now it⁈⁚s up to Manning. If the pain in his shoulder decreases, or if he can tolerate it, he can play against the Green Bay Packers in the Giants⁈⁚ home opener. If not, he⁈⁚ll sit out and Jared Lorenzen will get the call.

The Giants are also convinced that even if Manning can⁈⁚t play this week, that he will definitely be ready to go in two weeks when they play the Redskins in Washington on Sept. 23.
