On Sunday afternoon, the Manning brothers spent their day attending the New York Yankees 5-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays and both Peyton and Eli Manning were also in town to watch Peyton's longtime friend and Yankee captain, Derek Jeter.
Currently, the Giants quarterback is recovering from arthroscopic ankle surgery; the injury he suffered during Week 17 against the Washington Redskins and an injury that will keep Manning out of OTA's which is why they have signed Josh Freeman and Rusty Smith as quarterback depth and insurance, plus to compete for roster spots.
Manning is still expected to be ready to go once training camp begins this summer and has been seen without the walking boot that he was once in after he had the surgery. On Sunday at Yankee Stadium, Eli's older brother talked about how his brother has been recovering from the surgery and has looked good in the rehab process.
"Eli feels good," Manning said. "He was doing some light throwing the other day. Obviously, just upper body. He's disappointed he has to miss some of the OTAs but it's better than missing some of the games during the season. He threw the ball well down there at Duke (during an informal workouts that included receivers from the Giants and Broncos). He looked good. Just the doctors felt it my pop up during the fall. But he's doing well. He's getting better every day."
