An apparent stomach illness forced New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning to miss part of Wednesday's practice session, team officials said.

According to Coach Tom Coughlin, the sickness is a 24-hour "stomach bug."

Manning sits out of practice just days ahead of the much anticipated NFC championship against the San Francisco 49ers.

Other players who missed practice Wednesday include defensive ends Justin Tuck and Umenyiora, cornerback Corey Webster and linebacker Mark Herzlich.
