Manning suffered an ankle injury in the 2013 season finale against the Washington Redskins and after attempts to rehab, Manning underwent surgery on Thursday to correct the issue and clean out the ankle.

"I went through the recovery and rehab after suffering the sprain," Manning said in the release. "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."
