    Eli Manning left practice early Wednesday because of a stomach bug.

    Don't get too excited San Francisco 49ers' fans. This is probably one of those 24 hour deals.

    New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning missed part of Wednesday's practice session with a stomach illness.

    Coach Tom Coughlin calls it "a stomach bug, hopefully a 24-hour deal." Just like we thought.

    The team is preparing to play the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday for the NFC championship.
    Manning is on the Giants' injury report for the first time this season as a limited participant in practice.

    Also limited Wednesday are defensive ends Justin Tuck and Osi Umenyiora, cornerback Corey Webster and rookie linebacker Mark Herzlich (ankle).

    Missing practice completely is running back Ahmad Bradshaw with a foot problem. Bradshaw frequently has sat out practices or been limited in recent weeks.
