Eli Manning leaves game bloodied

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning left  Monday’s  preseason game  against the  Jets early  in the second quarter after suffering a cut to his forehead.

On  the snap,  running  back Brandon  Jacobs  came  up the  middle,  but on  a miscommunication  collided  with the QB.  Manning was  then hit from the blind side  by linebacker  Calvin Pace. Manning’s head appeared to get caught on the facemask of safety Jim Leonhard. Jacobs recovered the fumble. Manning’s helmet popped off and he walked off the field holding his hand over his forehead with blood streaming down his face.

The  injury came in the first game at the New Meadowlands Stadium for Manning, who left after completing 4-of-8 passes for 77 yards.
