Eli Manning Needs Ankle Surgery


New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning injured his left ankle last season but now, he will have arthroscopic surgery to repair it. Manning told Giants.com that surgeon Dr. Robert Anderson is performing the procedure and he told him that he “should be running in about six weeks.”

The Giants start their offseason workout program in about two weeks and their OTAs begin on May 28th. Manning also told Giants.com that this isn’t a surprise to him.

“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.”

Manning also said that this procedure is to avoid any future problems with his ankle.
