According to Dan Graziano of ESPN, New York Giants RB David Wilson left Tuesdays practice with an injury to neck area.
Giants HC Tom Coughlin referred to the injury as a “burner” and added that; “We were all praying” for no setback, per Kimberly Jones.
Wilson was medically cleared on July 21 to resume football activities from a neck injury he sustained in Week 5. A burner is a nerve injury to the neck, so this could potentially become a big setback in Wilson’s recovery process.
Wilson, 22, was a first-round pick of the Giants back in 2012. He struggled before his injury last season, only averaging 3.3 yards-per-carry and fumbled twice, which led to him being benched.
We will provide more information regarding Wilson’s injury as it becomes available.
