Eli Manning is to undergo surgery on his left ankle today as he seeks to resolve an injury sustained in the New York Giants final regular season game of last season.

The Mew York Giants quarterback revealed the procedure, which is likely to keep him out of action for around six weeks, in an interview with writer Michael Eisen:

"I went through the recovery and rehab after suffering the sprain," the QB explained.

"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."

With organized team facilities not due to start for the Giants until late May, should all go well, the two-time Super Bowl champion could be back in time to participate from the outset.

"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," Manning revealed.

Add to that the fact that the regular season does not begin for another five months, then Giants fans can rest easy safe in the knowledge that their quarterback will be fully recuperated and ready to go by then.

Manning had a disappointing season for the Giants, throwing a career high 27 interceptions in 2013.
