The Giants say Manning had the arthroscopic procedure in
Charlotte, North Carolina, on Thursday. He sprained the joint in
the regular-season finale in late December.
"I went through the recovery and rehab after suffering the
sprain," Manning said in a statement. "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.
(Robert) Anderson clean out the ankle."
Manning expects to be running within six weeks.
