New York Giants Lose Eli Manning To Surgery

The New York Giants will be without their starting quarterback to start the off-season training program.

The team has announced that Manning will have surgery due to discomfort in the ankle, an injury that occurred during the final game of the season against the Washington Redskins.

He tried to rehab the ankle during the off-season but it has not healed, and is still causing the quarterback discomfort.

Don’t worry Giants fans, he should be ready for the start of the season as Manning as he should be able to run again within six weeks.

According to a statement from Manning he said,

“I’m looking forward to the start of the offseason program on the (April) 21st,” the three-time Pro Bowler said in a statement. “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.”

Their first camp workouts begin May 28-30.
