Eli Manning's rapid recovery from ankle surgery doesn't surprise the Giants anymore, and Manning doesn't even think twice when it comes to the first surgery he's ever had.
Once thought of as a scratch for OTA's, Manning hasn't missed one yet.
"Yeah, 100 percent, yeah," Manning said. "I don't think about it, I don't notice it. I go about practice and do everything and they're not even worried about it. It hasn't been an issue and there's no question I could play tomorrow."
"Yeah, and in all the OTA's, I've taken all the reps that I would normally take."
After eight straight top 15 finishes, Manning (and the Giants offense) tanked in 2013. He finished #21, but his play seemed even worse than that. A bounce back season is likely given his talent and the arrival of OC Ben McAdoo, who plans to install a quick hitting offense from his days in Green Bay. Hakeem Nicks is gone, but Odell Beckham and Rueben Randle are expected to emerge.
