New York Giants' news, 4/11: Eli Manning surgery a success

This is the play Eli Manning was injured on - Ron Antonelli

New York Giants' headlines for Friday, 4/11.

Good morning, New York Giants' fans! Here are your Friday morning headlines.

Surgery on the left ankle of Eli Manning was reportedly completed successfully Thursday evening: Quick question -- hasn't every surgery ever done on an athlete been reported as "successful?"

When the news of Manning's surgery was first reported, there was lots of gnashing of teeth in the comments about the time Manning would miss during the offseason. Those of you who are concerned need to relax. The first phase of the offseason program is simply weight-lifting and classroom work, all of which Manning will be able to do. The on-field phase does not begin until May 28, seven weeks from now. Manning's estimated recovery to be allowed to run is six weeks. There is never a good time to have surgery, but getting it done now should have little impact on Manning's readiness for the 2014 season.

Former Giants' quarterback Phil Simms is not impressed with the 2014 quarterbacks class.

Forner Dallas Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach says Johnny Manziel should be the first pick in the draft.

Wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin didn't help his NFL Draft stock by blowing off a workout for a scout because he was "tired."

The movie 'Draft Day' opens in theaters Friday. Here is a review from NFL.com.
