Notes and Quotes: Head Coach Tom Coughlin hopes to play all four quarterbacks against the Browns on Monday. Manning is expected to take about 20-25 snaps. After Manning, Anthony Wright will play, followed by Andre Woodson, and then David Carr.
QB Eli Manning on S Kenny Phillips: “He’s aggressive and seems like he’s always around the ball. He’s got good range, and it seems like he’s got a good feel on the field for making plays. Hopefully, he can continue to do that during the games and be a good player for our defense. Maybe get some turnovers and get us the ball back.”
