The Giants announced that Manning would have the surgery on Thursday to relieve some lingering discomfort in the ankle that he sprained in the regular season finale against Washington.

The two-time Super Bowl MVP has been rehabbing the ankle for more than three months, but it is still bothering him.

Dr. Robert Anderson, a foot and ankle specialist in Charlotte, N.C., will perform a debridement of the ankle. Manning should be able to run in six weeks.

“I’m looking forward to the start of the offseason program on the (April) 21st,” Manning said in a statement. “I will be in the weight room and in the meeting rooms so we can all learn the new offense. I got some good work in this week at Duke, and I think it’s smart to get this procedure done now so the ankle isn’t an ongoing issue. I’m eager to get to work with our new offensive coaches and system.”

The Giants will hold organized team activities May 28-30, June 2-3, June 5, June 9-10, June 12-13, and a mandatory minicamp June 17-19.

Coach Tom Coughlin hired Ben McAdoo as the new offensive coordinator after Kevin Gilbride retired after last season. There also is a new quarterback coach, Danny Langsdorf.

New York has missed the playoffs the past two seasons.
