Giants add rookie QB Randolph

The Giants signed rookie QB Dominic Randolph Thursday after only one quarterback suited up for their Wednesday practice.

Eli Manning has been ruled out of Saturday's preseason game after needing 12 stitches to repair his forehead gash suffered against the Jets Monday night. The Giants are being cautious with Manning — wearing a helmet could irritate the injury.

Backup QB Jim Sorgi is nursing a sore shoulder, leaving Rhett Bomar as the only quarterback in practice on Wednesday. Head coach Tom Coughlin said he didn't remember ever holding a practice with only one quarterback.

Randolph went to Holy Cross, where he was the Patriot League Offensive Player of the Year for three consecutive seasons. He was with the Giants in their rookie minicamp in May but was waived when QB Riley Skinner was signed. Skinner was released by the team on June 24.
