EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J., Aug. 21 (UPI) -- New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning suffered a right elbow injury in Saturday's preseason game against Carolina.

Giants Coach Tom Coughlin said X-rays were negative and a further diagnosis won't be available until Monday when Manning meets with team doctors.

"I can say right off the bat that right now Eli's going through a series of tests," Coughlin said Sunday. "They've done tests on him today. We're calling it a sprain, the X-ray was negative. Our situation right now is that we're waiting until the complete examination is concluded and that will have to wait until Dr. Warren is available to see Eli (Monday) morning."

Manning was hurt in the second quarter when he was hit on the arm by Panthers defensive end Julius Peppers, who caused a fumble on the play and returned the loose ball 29 yards for a touchdown.

Manning later threw a 41-yard touchdown pass to Amani Toomer.
