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.

Grading ESPN’s 4 Worst Fantasy Projections For Week 9

Oct 29 2014 2:25pm CDT | Source: SportsGrid

Week 8 was one of the biggest fantasy weekends in recently memory, with six players going for more than 30 points (normally there’s only one or two). Let’s see how I did… - Bernard Pierce was a last minute scratch — not because of an injury, because he sucks. I knew he’d never get to nine points. Point: Sportsgrid - Russell Wilson fell short of ESPN’s lofty expectation he’d finish with 27 fantasy points against the Panthers. He ended up with half that. ...

NFL Power Rankings: Week 9 Standings Based on Latest Super Bowl Odds

It seems like every time we are ready to declare a team one of the best in the NFL, the squad loses a game it shouldn't have lost. The Dallas Cowboys had moved up the list to become one of the most impressive teams all season, but a home loss to the Washington Redskins now has people second-guessing Tony Romo and company. The Indianapolis Colts and Green Bay Packers also had disappointing losses after coming into the week red hot. Th ...

Bears fans have made up their minds on Jay Cutler

The Chicago Tribune asked Bears fans about Jay Cutler. Their answer was resounding, and not good for Jay. @PFTCommenter strong take from the people of Chicago pic.twitter.com/qMuqs3LyLG — Jim (@jseesel) October 26, 2014 We can confirm that's a real poll. And it was posted *before* today's 51-23 beatdown at the hands of the Patriots. This is unfair for a few reasons. First, the "elite quarterback" question is always a silly argument that's both ent ...

Peyton Manning, Julius Thomas' Instant Fantasy Reaction After Week 8

Facing one of the most prolific quarterback-tight end tandems in NFL history, Peyton Manning looked to make his own statement with Julius Thomas. Unfortunately, Thomas simply wouldn't get in the game plan much against the San Diego Chargers. Manning didn't target his tight end at the same volume as other receivers, but he still had another huge night. Emmanuel Sanders led the team with nine catches for 120 y ...

Eagles vs. Cardinals: Breaking Down Philadelphia's Game Plan

Oct 23 2014 1:54am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

When we last saw the Philadelphia Eagles, their tight ends were busy abusing the New York Giants defense to the tune of eight receptions for 118 yards and two touchdowns in a 27-0 victory. Such a performance was likely a sign of things to come in Arizona this Sunday, where the Eagles are set to collide with the Cardinals in a battle of 5-1 teams. As it turns out, the first-place Cardinals are one of the worst teams in the NFL when it comes to defending tight ends, a trend that dates back to last ...

One year ago, New York Giants running back Andre Williams led the nation in rushing yardage as a member of the Boston College Eagles with 2,177 yards. Now in his rookie season with the Giants, Williams has shown himself to be an intriguing running back who has good speed and power. Like all rookies, Williams is still in the process of adjusting to the pro level, where holes don’t necessarily stay open as long as they do in college, and where proper technique is of the utmost importance on every ...
