April 10 (Bloomberg) -- New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left ankle. He expects to be able to run in about six weeks.

Manning, 33, said in a team-issued statement that he suffered a high ankle sprain in the Giants’ season finale against the Washington Redskins in December. He decided to have the procedure, called a debridement, performed by Robert Anderson today in Charlotte, North Carolina.

“I went through the recovery and rehab after suffering the sprain,” Manning said. “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. Anderson clean out the ankle. The doc tells me I should be running in about six weeks.”

The Giants begin their offseason program on April 21, and Manning said he’ll participate in non-running activities such as weightlifting and learning the team’s offense under new coordinator Ben McAdoo.

Manning had his worst statistical season as a starter in 2013 as the Giants went 7-9 to miss the playoffs. He led the National Football League in interceptions, with 27, and his 18 touchdown passes were the fewest since he became a full-time starter in 2005. He’s started 151 straight regular-season games for New York, having not missed a contest since he was a rookie.
