EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- Eli Manning has been diagnosed with inflamed tissue in his right foot, or plantar fasciitis.
The New York Giants quarterback had an MRI on Monday afternoon, and team physician Russell Warren told Manning he could play this weekend against the Oakland Raiders if he could tolerate the pain.
The Giants have listed him as day to day with the injury.
Manning has soreness and swelling in the heel and arch area on the bottom of his foot. The injury was most likely caused when Manning got up on his toes as he dropped back and attempted to pass to Steve Smith in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game in Kansas City.
The injury is an inflammation of the plantar fascia, a tight band of connective tissue in the arch of the foot. It's an injury that develops over time and usually lingers.
