Former Badger Sorgi Out 2-3 Weeks With Shoulder Injury

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -- Eli Manning isn't the only Giants quarterback who will miss New York's preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Scratch backup Jim Sorgi, too.

Agent Matt Brei says Sorgi had an MRI on Thursday and was diagnosed with a torn capsule that will sideline him two to three weeks. The good news is that the injury did not involve Sorgi's labrum, which was an issue last season.

With Manning (12 stitches) and Sorgi sidelined, first-year pro Rhett Bomar is going to start and possibly play the entire game against the Steelers on Saturday night in the Giants' first home game at the New Meadowlands Stadium.

The Giants signed free agent quarterback Dominic Randolph on Thursday and tight end Jake Ballard was waived.
