Curtis Painter to Miss a Month Due to Knee Surgery: The New York Giants announced on Monday that quarterback Curtis Painter underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee on Friday. Painter is expected to be out at least four weeks as he recovers.

The Giants currently have five quarterbacks on their roster, but two of them are currently out of service. In addition to Painter, Eli Manning is recovering from arthroscopic surgery on his left ankle. Manning is not expected to start running until sometime in May. It is believed he will be held out of on-the-field activities until training camp in July.

The only healthy quarterbacks to throw passes to the receivers during the team’s offseason workout program are Ryan Nassib, Josh Freeman, and Rusty Smith. Smith was signed by the Giants on Monday.

The first two weeks of the team’s offseason workout program consists mainly of strength training and conditioning work. However, on-field workouts will begin on May 5. The team will also hold 10 Organized Team Activity (OTA) workouts (various dates from May 28 – June 13) and a mandatory mini-camp June 17-19.
