Eli Manning to undergo surgery

The New York Giants confirm that Eli Manning will undergo ankle surgery to ensure that he is fit for the 2014 season.

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning has confirmed that he will undergo ankle surgery in order to be fully fit for the start of the 2014 season.

Manning sprained his left ankle during the Giants' final game of the 2013 season and will go under the knife in order to eliminate the discomfort that he is still feeling.

"I went through the recovery and rehab after suffering the sprain," he said in a club statement.

"I was still experiencing some discomfort as I began my normal off-season preparation, and after consultation, we felt the right thing was to have Dr Robert Anderson clean out the ankle."

The surgery is expected to keep Manning out for around six weeks.
