"It feels good," Manning said. "I am able to move around and I didnít have a setback by any means. It felt like it is getting better every day and getting to feel better by the end of this week."

The Giants, whose 5-0 record is their best start since winning 10 in a row in 1990, will play Drew Brees and the Saints (4-0) in New Orleans this weekend in a battle of unbeaten teams.

It will be Manning's first NFL game in his hometown of New Orleans. He was supposed to play there in 2005, but the game was moved to Giants Stadium after the city flooded in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

"I'm excited about it," he said. "It is always fun to go to your hometown and play a game, especially since I was a Saints fan growing up. Seen many games in the Superdome. So, I am excited about the opportunity to go in there and get to play in the Superdome and expect a big game going against the Saints."

Manning threw two touchdown passes and played less than a half in the Giants' 44-6 victory over the Raiders on Sunday.
