Eli Manning believes that his left ankle is 100-percent after undergoing surgery on it a month ago.

“I feel 100%,” Manning said to the New York Daily News. “But the trainers tell me I’m not.”

Giants general manager Jerry Reese has already ruled Manning out for OTAs but that has not changed the quarterbacks thoughts on his ankle.

“I already feel like I can go out there and do everything,” Manning said. “We’ll still be smart about it these next few weeks and not overdo anything. If they want to limit me somewhat, I’ll understand that. But I want to take every single rep and they know that.”

A season ago Manning had the worst full-season of his NFL career completing 57.5-percent of his passes for a career low 18 touchdowns and a career high 27 interceptions. Those numbers will need to change if the Giants are to become contenders in the NFC East again.
