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.

Over the years, we’ve heard quarterbacks get carried away in the offseason. Confidence is one thing, using media attention for league-wide attention is another when everybody knows the reality of the situation. There aren’t too many stars like Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers, who let their play do most of the talking. Sure, they may take a leadership role […] ...

Fantasy Football 2014: Rookies with High Upside Worth a Gamble

Jul 25 2014 5:53pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

No matter which way it is sliced, NFL rookies are a roll of the dice. In fantasy football, that dice is more often than not loaded against the owner. Rookie wideouts may bust outright or be ignored in favor of veterans. Backs may get downright outplayed at a very replaceable position. Quarterbacks struggle no matter what. A tight end's usage can be impossible to predict as the league continues to tinker with the position. In short, no rookie is a safe bet. The best th ...
