Right tackle Fred Miller battled with a partially torn MCL in his right knee during the middle of the season, but had even bigger problems with a right ankle issue that forced him out of Giants game on Dec. 2. Miller is not one to miss games. It was just the second he had missed since 1998, when he started 15 games for the St. Louis Rams.
He said he will undergo arthroscopic surgery on the ankle, probably next week.
Miller is just one of a handful of players who will have offseason tuneups. Defensive tackle Tommie Harris will have his left knee cleaned up. Its unknown if linebacker Hunter Hillenmeyer will require a minor procedure on the nagging shoulder injury that plagued him down the stretch.
