Eli Manning was officially named the New York Giants' starting quarterback Saturday for the first time since Week 2, but offensive coordinator Mike Shula doesn't envision the veteran showing signs of rust against the Philadelphia Eagles.

"He looks good," Shula told reporters, according to's Grant Gordon. "He's had a good week. He always has a good look in his eye. He's been great for me, as a coach, to be around. I've learned a lot from him. I look forward to watching him on Monday night."

"Obviously, he's practiced every day," he continued. "He's gotten himself ready mentally and physically. It's just a matter of getting back out there."

Rookie Daniel Jones - who took over for Manning in Week 3 - is currently battling a high ankle sprain and will miss Monday night's tilt.

Shula expressed confidence in Manning and said he won't be tinkering much with his offensive scheme for the 38-year-old passer.

"We might not have him running the ball like we did with Daniel," Shula said. "But other than that, really nothing."

Manning owns a 10-22 record versus Philadelphia and hasn't beaten his NFC East rival since 2016.
