After practicing fully for the New York Giants on Wednesday despite being listed on the pre-practice injury report with a back injury, quarterback Eli Manning put to rest any questions about his status for Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins.

Numerous beat writers tweeted basically the same update. So, apparently no worries about the Giants QB.

[11:43 a.m. ET: Updated with more from today's Tom Coughlin press conference]

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning is on the team's pre-practice injury report for Wednesday with a back injury. Manning, who has the league's longest consecutive start streak at 164 games, reportedly spent additional time with training staff after Sunday's game vs. the Tennessee Titans.

Head coach Tom Coughlin had said on Monday that Manning was "sore" but that "no one seems overly concerned."

Coughlin said Wednesday that Manning will practice this afternoon. He said "I hope not" when asked if the quarterback would be limited at all. The coach said Manning would "practice like he always practices, unless I hear something different from him."

Coughlin added that he did not know when the injury occurred.

Also on the injury report for the Giants are offensive lineman James Brewer (concussion), linebacker Mark Herzlich (concussion), linebacker Jacquian Williams (concussion), linebacker Jameel McClain (knee). Brewer, Herzlich and Williams missed Sunday's game vs. Tennessee.

Coughlin said that Brewer, McClain and Williams will be the only players who will miss practice.

Rashad Jennings and Justin Pugh are not on the injury list, which is good news.
