While his right heel is a little sore, quarterback Eli Manning hopes to practice with the New York Giants on Wednesday.

A day after hurting the heel in a non-contact injury in a win over Kansas City, Manning walked into the locker room with neither a boot, a crutch or much evidence of heavy tape on his right foot. The only obvious sign of an injury was a slight limp.

Manning was to have an MRI on his right leg late Monday afternoon.

"I don't think it's nothing to be worried about. It will be getting rid of the soreness," Manning said.

Manning said he was not worried about the MRI, which will be reviewed by Dr. Russell Warren later in the day. He still had some swelling and soreness Monday morning. He got ice and stimulation treatment and went through his strength program before attending meetings before talking to the media.

Manning said his status for Sunday's home game against Oakland would depend on how fast the heel heals.
