New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning will undergo left ankle surgery on April 10.

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning will undergo left ankle surgery on April 10. 

Michael Eisen of the Giants' official website says Manning sustained the injury during the team's 2013 season finale against the Washington Redskins: 

"Giants quarterback Eli Manning will undergo an arthroscopic procedure on his left ankle this afternoon. 

"The procedure, a debridement of the ankle, will be performed by foot and ankle specialist Dr. Robert Anderson in Charlotte, N.C. 

"Manning suffered a high left ankle sprain in the Giants' 2013 season finale against Washington and had been rehabbing the injury since."

More specifically, Manning sprained the ankle after he was almost sacked by Washington defensive lineman Chris Baker, per The New York Times' Ken Belson. The Giants quarterback manage to get back up on his feet but was unsteady. 

In the ensuing play, he lost some mobility as he attempted to pass and was eventually intercepted.  

Manning told Eisen he had been undergoing rehab for the sprained ankle, but nagging discomfort during his offseason regimen made him resort to surgery.

"I went through the recovery and rehab after suffering the sprain. I was still experiencing some discomfort as I began my normal offseason preparation, and after consultation, we felt the right thing was to have Dr. Anderson clean out the ankle.

"The doc tells me I should be running in about six weeks. I'm looking forward to the start of the offseason program on the 21st. I will be in the weight room and in the meeting rooms so we can all learn the new offense.

"I got some good work in this week at Duke, and I think it's smart to get this procedure done now so the ankle isn't an ongoing issue. I'm eager to get to work with our new offensive coaches and system." 

Tom Canavan of The Associated Press (via Yahoo! Sports) says debridement involves "removing dead, damaged or infected tissue to improve the healing potential of the remaining healthy tissue." 

According to ESPN's Dan Graziano, Manning's recovery period should allow him to join his teammates for a good part of the offseason workouts. 

"The Giants offseason program begins April 21. OTA workouts begin May 28, and minicamp is June 17-19. So the six-week timetable would have Manning up and running in time for the bulk of the offseason workouts.

"It's important for Manning to get as much work as he can this offseason as he and the Giants will be learning a new offense under new offensive coordinator Bob McAdoo."

 Manning has been a very durable player -- he hasn't missed a game ever since becoming New York's starting quarterback during his rookie year in 2004, per Graziano. He has now started in 151 consecutive games, which is the league's longest active streak.

It is also "the third-longest by a quarterback in league history," according to the ESPN update

In spite of Manning's iron man streak, he suffered through what was arguably his worst season in 2013. His 18 touchdowns were the fewest he's ever thrown since he became a starter, Belson stresses. He also led the NFL in interceptions last season with 27. 

The Giants' 7-9 mark was their worst in a decade. They missed the playoffs as a result.

NFL Power Rankings: Charting Every Team Heading into Week 3

Sep 18 2014 5:53pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The NFL season is only two weeks old, but we've already seen enough to form early opinions about the contenders and pretenders in the league. This year, heading into Week 3, there are seven undefeated teams remaining. While it's no shock to see the Denver Broncos with an unblemished record at this point, the Buffalo Bills are a definite surprise. There are also a few surprises on the other end of the spectrum as well. The Indianapolis Colts are still winless, as are the ...

Lions CB Darius Slay Key vs. Packers' Aaron Rodgers, Jordy Nelson

Sep 18 2014 1:54pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Detroit Lions must know that finally winning the NFC North will likely require beating a healthy Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers.  Week 3 of the young 2014 season provides that opportunity.  The numbers and results between the two clubs are staggeringly one-sided when Rodgers starts and finishes the contest. The Packers have averaged 29.7 points over the nine games, with Rodgers throwing 19 touchdown passes against just four interceptions. Most importantly, Green ...

Jason: So, this week has turned into quite the cluster. It makes one long for the halcyon days when we could have a debate about whether Eli Manning was elite. The constant onslaught of news related to Adrian Peterson or Ray Rice or Roger Goodell has done one thing: completely dried up crazy takes on what happens on the field. I feel like Colin Kaepernick, for one, would have been skewered for that perfo ...

What's Wrong with New York Giants WR Victor Cruz?

So who is this man wearing No. 80 for the New York Giants? He stands 6’0” and weighs 204 pounds and is listed as receiver Victor Cruz in the game program. However, his production through two games are far from being Cruz-like in that they’re a paltry seven catches (out of 16 targets) for 84 yards and no touchdowns. The good news is that I can confirm that it is indeed Cruz, the hometown hero who made the salsa da ...

NFL Power Rankings Week 3: Updated Team Records and Review

As shocking as Week 1 of the NFL regular season was, it can certainly be argued that Week 2 featured just as many twists and turns. After looking invincible in a Week 1 win over the Green Bay Packers, the Seattle Seahawks proved to be human by falling on the road in Week 2. Also, some surprising 1-0 teams bettered their records to 2-0 and have already put themselves in prime playoff position. There is undoub ...
