Eli Manning (ankle) believes he will be on the field for the start of OTAs in two weeks.
Manning had ankle surgery and appears to have recovered well, if he is planning on participating in OTAs. He is off crutches and out of his walking boot, and has been running since the beginning of the month. ANALYST: Ivar G. Anderson
Manning is about five weeks removed from off-season ankle surgery. Manning said, "I already feel like I can go out there and do everything. Well still be smart about it these next few weeks and not overdo anything. But it feels like we made the right decision (on surgery) and well get out there for OTAs." ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Michael Brantley (back) has returned to the Indians' lineup Sunday.
Brantley was out of the lineup as precaution and now seems to be 100 percent healthy. Brantley was one of the most improved players last season, which has greatly increased his fantasy value as some people are drafting him in the second or third round in fantasy drafts. He'll have to have another strong season in order to return value on that high of a draft pick. Analysis: Mark Kaplan
