Eli Manning limps out of press conference on crutches (PHOTO)

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning left Sunday's season finale against the Washington Redskins with a sprained ankle and did not return to the game, which his team won, 20-6.

Backup Curtis Painter played the second half at quarterback for the Giants and was 2 of 8 passing for 11 yards and an interception.

Manning started his 150th consecutive game before he was was hit hard by defensive lineman Chris Baker while attempting a pass with a minute left in the second quarter. He had to be helped to his feet by an official and was limping badly, but he stayed in the game.

Later, limping with a boot on his left foot, Manning left the post-game press conference on his own power, but then needed a pair of crutches for support. The team said he was diagnosed with a high ankle sprain.
