Giants Now: Best of Week 17 ManningCast


Best of ManningCast from Week 17

The successful first season of ESPN's alternate ManningCast broadcast continued in Week 17, with Eli and Peyton welcoming another star-studded list of guests to the show.

The festivities kicked off with a visit from Pro Football Hall of Fame Coach Bill Cower, before NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell stopped by for a chat with the Manning brothers.

In the second half, Eli and Peyton chatted with rap legend Snoop Dogg before having an interesting conversation with Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Here are the best clips from the Week 17 ManningCast.

Take a special behind-the-scenes look at the making of The Eli Manning Show.

Jake Fromm likely to start finale; Mike Glennon injures wrist

Mike Glennon finds himself in the same circumstance as the player he replaced, Daniel Jones, as his season has come to a premature end due to injury.

The quarterback who has started four of the Giants' five games since Jones was forced from the lineup due to a neck injury, hurt his left wrist in the team's 29-3 loss yesterday to the Chicago Bears. Glennon will undergo surgery and miss the season finale Sunday in MetLife Stadium against the Washington Football Team.

"I'm not going to go through the specific diagnosis, but it was an injury to his non-throwing hand," coach Joe Judge said today. "It's something that has to be handled probably sooner than later, but he'll be unavailable to play this week."

Glennon played in six games, tying the second-highest total of his nine-year career, in his first season with the Giants. He completed 90 of 167 passes (53.9%) for 790 yards, four touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Glennon was sacked nine times, including four in Soldier Field.

Against the Bears, Glennon completed only four of 11 passes for 24 yards.

Judge expressed admiration for Glennon's attitude, preparation, competitiveness and willingness to stand tall in a collapsing pocket.

"I'm pleased with what Mike's done for the team and how hard he works," Judge said today. "It's a shame. Mike got hurt in the game yesterday. He's going to have surgery coming up soon and he won't be available for the game this week. I know Mike wanted to go out there yesterday and compete and do everything he could for the team, and that's the way his season will end."

Jake Fromm will likely make his second start and third appearance of the season. Brian Lewerke, who has spent the entire season on the practice squad, is expected to be Fromm's backup.

"Right now, it would be Jake," Judge said. "We have Brian Lewerke with us all year, including some of the preseason. He's been with us and familiar with our schemes. We'll work both those guys in practice this week. Right now, based on reps and games, Jake would have the nod. I would anticipate getting him prepared that way, but like any other week we'll get both guys ready and make sure they're both prepared and ready to play."
