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.

Why DeMeco Ryans Was the Philadelphia Eagles' MVP for the Season's First Half

Nov 5 2014 1:02am CST | Source: Bleacher Report

The catalyst for the Philadelphia Eagles' 6-2 start isn't signal-caller Nick Foles. It's not LeSean McCoy, Jeremy Maclin or even the tenacious Darren Sproles. It's inside linebacker DeMeco Ryans. Somehow, amid all the talk about Nick Foles, the offensive line, Sproles and safety Malcolm Jenkins' multiple interceptions, DeMeco Ryans' strong campaign has gone relatively unnoticed. Through ...

NFL Power Rankings: Week 10 Expert Consensus from Around the Web

Nov 4 2014 10:00am CST | Source: Bleacher Report

The NFL prides itself on its parity for a reason, which makes separating the teams in a power rankings format particularly difficult. That is why you find different rankings across the web depending on your source of information. A certain 5-3 team may look completely different to one commentator than it does for another. It is best to look across a few different sources for your power rankings needs. That will give you a cross section of different ratings, which will ideally provide th ...

Vontae Davis' Elite Play Fuels Hopes Colts Defense Can Beat Better Competition

A week after Pittsburgh's thrashing of the Colts defense, Indianapolis doesn't really seem so alone in that regard. The insertion of Martavis Bryant appears to have given Pittsburgh enough weapons to handle any team, as the Steelers showed by torching Baltimore on Sunday night.  Meanwhile, in New York, it was just another day at the office for the Indianapolis defense, which harassed and harried quarterba ...

NFL Power Rankings: Initial Post-Sunday Breakdown Ahead of Week 10

Nov 3 2014 6:00am CST | Source: Bleacher Report

Week 9 of the 2014 NFL season was chock-full of bye weeks. Still, despite a number of inactive teams, the league's hierarchy shifted after several pivotal contests—some of which produced rather unexpected results. With only one game remaining this week—a Monday Night Football contest between the Indianapolis Colts and New York Giants—it's pretty clear what the updated NFL power rankings will look like as we head into Week 10. Rest assured, they look far different from one week ago ...

Laquon Treadwell, Ole Miss, and the matter of ghosts

Sometimes, knowing there's no curse only makes it more terrifying. That screen play's design does not read, "Win the game and save the season, no matter what." Laquon Treadwell could’ve let himself be tackled inside No. 3 Auburn's 5-yard line and taken more time away from Gus Malzahn’s response to the No. 4 Rebels likely going up, 38-35, with seconds left. He decided to win it all. Via ESPN That's a decision only questi ...

Andre Williams Is Worth the Fantasy Start in Week 9 with Rashad Jennings out

Nov 1 2014 12:48am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

To say that New York Giants rookie Andre Williams hasn't exactly taken off with the starting running back job would be an understatement, but he remains fantasy relevant due to his workload in Rashad Jennings' absence. Week 9 is no different. Williams was one of the league's best rookie rushers in the preseason, but it hasn't translated over into the regular season, at least in terms of ef ...
