NFL: Giants' Manning has ankle surgery

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning underwent a successful arthroscopic procedure on his left ankle Thursday, the team said.

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

"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," Manning said.

Kaepernick investigated

Three NFL players are named in a police report involving a woman who passed out in a Miami hotel and later woke up in a hospital not knowing how she got there, though no one has been charged with a crime, authorities said.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and wide receiver Quinton Patton, and Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Ricardo Lockette were with the woman at a hotel where Lockette lives, according to the Miami police report.

Police emphasized that the report contains only unproven allegations at this point.

The woman told police she had a sexual relationship in the past with Kaepernick, 26. His agent, Scott Smith, did not immediately respond to e-mail and voice-mail messages.
