Peyton gets good news, Eli... not so much.
Going into the final week of the season where a win against the Tennessee Titans would secure a playoff berth for Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts, comes this bit of news from the AFC South: David Garrard will miss the season finale against the Houston Texans with a finger injury, meaning Trent Edwards will get the nod. This is just the latest in a string of bad losses for the Jaguars, who will also be missing Pro Bowl running back Maurice Jones-Drew.
The news for little bro Eli Manning is not as good, as Hakeem Nicks may miss the season finale against the Washington Redskins with a broken big toe. With the Giants already missing Steve Smith and facing a must-win at Washington on Sunday, look for Brandon Jacobs and Ahmad Bradshaw to be the focal point of the Giants offense.
