The Giants announced that QB Eli Manning will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left ankle on Thursday.

Manning, 33, had his left ankle injured in week 17 against Washington. Since then, he is been rehabbing on it. 

Eli issued a statement on his process dealing with the ankle. 

"I went through the recovery and rehab after suffering the sprain,” Manning said in a press release. “I was still experiencing some discomfort as I began my normal offseason preparation."

The Giants' offseason program begins on April 21st with conditioning, training, etc. Followed by OTAs that are scheduled to commence in May and June. Eli notes that it' is a 6 week recovery but will still participate in the weight room and meeting rooms to understand the new offense. 

"After consultation, we felt the right thing was to have Dr. Anderson clean out the ankle," Manning said. "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 and 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.”
