Eli Manning explained why he waited to have ankle surgery

 

eli manningNew York Giants quarterback Eli Manning explained to reporters on Tuesday why he waited to undergo arthroscopic ankle surgery.

“I started off my training, my running and I just didn’t think it was healing correctly,” said Manning via Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News. I got some more MRIs. I talked to Dr. Anderson in Charlotte for a good while and developed a plan to see what was the best scenario. We just felt this was the safest bet to go ahead and do the scope at this point, rather than waiting and seeing how it felt, going through OTAs and mini-camp. Then all of a sudden its June or July and then you might be missing training camp. We felt this was the safest bet. This will insure that I’m back 100 percent by training camp.”
