Giants RB David Wilson Leaves Practice With A Neck “Burner”

 

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.

The Giants’ backfield consists of Wilson, Rashad JenningsPeyton Hillis, rookie Andre Williams, Michael Cox and Kendall Gaskins.

We will provide more information regarding Wilson’s injury as it becomes available.
