The Giants are installing a "quick-hitting passing attack that is predicated on timing" under new OC Ben McAdoo.
Per beat writer Jordan Raanan, the biggest benefit may be simplification of route concepts for players like Rueben Randle, while the offensive line isn't asked to hold blocks as long. The Chargers took a similar approach with Philip Rivers last year, and it paid off handsomely en route to NFL Comeback Player of the Year honors. It remains to be seen whether Eli Manning possesses the short to intermediate accuracy to make a Rivers-like late-career leap. Jun 23 - 1:19 PM

Eli Manning (ankle) said he's 100 percent and could play in a game if he needed to.

"Yeah, 100%, yeah," Manning said. "The ankle, I don’t think about it, don’t notice it. I go about practice and do everything and they’re not even worried about it. So, it hasn’t been an issue. No question I could play tomorrow." Manning participated fully in OTAs and should do the same at mandatory minicamp. As for the new offense, Manning admits "there's still some learning curve."

Eli Manning (ankle surgery) is participating at Giants OTAs.

Manning isn't even two months removed from his left ankle scope, but he was taking the majority of first-team reps in team drills Wednesday. Health will not be an issue as Eli tries to bounce back from a broken 2013 season that saw him throw 18 touchdowns and 27 interceptions. He turned 33 in January.

Eli Manning (ankle) said he feels 100 percent healthy, but "the trainers tell me I'm not."

"I already feel like I can go out there and do everything," Manning said. "We’ll still be smart about it these next few weeks and not overdo anything. If they want to limit me somewhat, I’ll understand that. But I want to take every single rep and they know that." Manning underwent minor ankle surgery on April 10 and had been declared out for OTAs by GM Jerry Reese. A big season lies ahead for Eli and he wants to get to work as soon as possible in a new offense. He'll be all systems go for training camp.

According to Peyton Manning, Eli Manning (ankle surgery) has already resumed throwing the football.

Eli went underwent a scope on April 10. He's off crutches, feeling good and doing some light throwing. Peyton added that Dr. Robert Anderson recommended the debridement procedure as a preemptive measure to guard against an issue popping up during the regular season. The Giants won't rush Manning back into spring work, but he'll be 100 percent for training camp.
May 5 - 8:11 AM

Eli Manning (ankle surgery) has begun running three weeks ahead of schedule.

"I’m off all crutches," he said. "Out of the boot. Doing some running, doing some drops. So it’s coming around fast." Eli's availability for training camp was never really in doubt, but this confirms it. He should 100 percent before late July. Manning will be a somewhat intriguing bounce-back QB2 pick in 2014 re-draft leagues with upgrades all over the Giants' offensive line.
May 3 - 9:21 AM

Eli Manning (ankle surgery) won't resume practicing before training camp.

"We want him back for the summer," GM Jerry Reese said Thursday. "We're not going to rush him back." Manning has already shed his walking boot, but the G-Men have zero incentive to rush their quarterback. He'll be 100 percent for training camp.
May 1 - 2:11 PM

Eli Manning (ankle surgery) has already shed his protective boot.

Manning walked the first 100 yards of the March for Babies event on Sunday without a limp. He's progressing quickly off the left ankle scope he underwent two weeks ago. Eli's status for training camp is not in doubt.
Apr 28 - 8:06 AM

Eli Manning (ankle surgery) expects to be 100 percent for training camp.

Manning is currently on crutches, but is expected to resume running in roughly a month. There's an outside chance he'll be ready for June's minicamp. Barring a setback, Manning's ankle isn't a concern heading into 2014.
Apr 22 - 4:22 PM

Speaking in a Thursday radio interview, ex-Giants OC Kevin Gilbride said Eli Manning (ankle surgery) has "bounced back from minor procedures in the past that nobody knew about."

That was Gilbride's answer when asked how Manning would bounce back from his arthroscopic ankle operation. Gilbride also bristled at the notion that Manning is in the decline stage of his career. "He’d be the first one to tell you that he could’ve had a better year," Gilbride said. "I can't imagine (the Giants are) down on Eli going forward." The G-Men would be crazy not to at least consider the possibility. There's a lot on the line for the 33-year-old Manning in 2014.
Apr 17 - 1:17 PM

ESPN's Dan Graziano reports the Giants have concerns Eli Manning is entering the decline stage of his career.

Manning turned 33 in January. Per Graziano, it's part of the reason the G-Men decided not to extend Eli's contract this offseason, which would have provided significant cap relief. The Giants are hoping Manning is "energized" by the arrival of OC Ben McAdoo, but there's no guarantee he can rebound from the regression he showed in 2013. The Giants lost Hakeem Nicks and failed to upgrade at wide receiver or tight end in free agency, so Manning will be working with mostly the same supporting cast as last year. Manning recently underwent ankle surgery, but is expected to be ready for training camp.
Apr 12 - 2:38 PM

Eli Manning is undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his left ankle Thursday.

Manning suffered a high-ankle sprain in Week 17. "I was still experiencing some discomfort as I began my normal offseason preparation," Manning said in a statement. "The doc tells me I should be running in about six weeks." It's unideal for a quarterback learning a new system, but Manning should be back to 100 percent well ahead of training camp. A 10-year veteran who's started every game since 2005, Manning should have little issue absorbing OC Ben McAdoo's offense.
Apr 10 - 2:30 PM's Dan Graziano expects the Giants to wait until after the 2014 season to give Eli Manning a contract extension.

Extending Manning now could potentially give the Giants more financial flexibility, but there's little reason for them to do a new deal at this point. Manning is coming off a 27-interception season and currently signed through 2015. The Giants want Manning to prove he's not in decline before making a decision on whether to extend him next offseason.
Mar 22 - 5:41 PM

Eli Manning (high-ankle sprain) is "well on his way" to 100 percent health.

Although they can be lengthy, high-ankle sprain rehabs are relatively straightforward. Barring an unforeseen setback, Manning will be back to normal well before OTAs. His game is what still needs fixing. Now 33, Manning has thrown 42 interceptions over his past 32 starts.
Feb 21 - 2:28 PM

New OC Ben McAdoo said he wants the Giants to be "an up-tempo, attacking-style offense."

McAdoo was an assistant on the Packers staff for the past two seasons, gaining first-hand experience with a team that ranked 11th in plays per game in 2013 even though Aaron Rodgers missed seven games. The Giants ranked 27th in that category. A quicker pace and more creativity in 2014 will give Eli Manning and Victor Cruz an excellent chance at bounce-back seasons. The Kevin Gilbride scheme was broken.
