Giants’ Shurmur to stick with Manning
Despite mounting losses and a first season quickly turning into a mess, Pat Shurmur is sticking with Eli Manning as the New York Giants quarterback.
Shurmur never hesitated yesterday when asked if he was considering a change in the wake of a 34-13 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles that dropped the Giants to 1-5.
“We believe in Eli,” Shurmur said, adding there will be no change to either veteran Alex Tanney or rookie Kyle Lauletta. Shurmur acknowledged Manning made some mistakes in the loss Thursday night, but so did a lot of other players, he said . . . .
Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill is questionable for tomorrow’s game against the Chicago Bears with a throwing shoulder injury . . . .
The Atlanta Falcons will be without defensive tackle Grady Jarrett (ankle) and running back Devonta Freeman (foot) tomorrow against Tampa Bay . . . .
New York Jets cornerback Buster Skrine has been ruled out this week with a concussion . . . .
Cleveland Browns rookie receiver Derrick Willies broke his collarbone in practice and the team said he will miss several games.
