Manningham goes from hospital to practice field

New York Giants rookie wide receiver Mario Manningham went to the hospital Wednesday because he was throwing up three times a day, and that seemed odd. Mike Garafolo of the Star-Ledger reports that Manningham caught a screen pass and immediately turned upfield today -- without vomiting.

I don't think we should get too excited about seeing Manningham on Sunday. Offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride has installed a couple of plays for the rookie, but he won't feel compelled to call them.

On the other hand, Domenik Hixon will be large part of the offense. Here's my bold prediction for Hixon: He will have a touchdown of 45 yards or more Sunday. In fact, I'm willing to place some blog entries on this. If Hixon doesn't have a 45-yard touchdown Sunday, I will write 14 blog entries on the Giants next week.

The breakdown would be 14 Giants entries, seven for the Redskins, seven Eagles and 28 Cowboys entries. Thanks for your continued support.
