The New York Giants released a statement regarding RB David Wilson‘s injury.
“Running back David Wilson, who has been sidelined with a herniated disc in his neck since October 6, underwent an MRI today at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan. Wilson was also re-evaluated by team physicians Dr. Russell Warren and Dr. Frank Cammisa.”
“The determination was made that while there has been significant improvement with the herniation, Wilson is still not clear to resume football activities. Wilson will undergo another evaluation in several weeks.”
It appears as though Wilson’s 2013 season is most likely over. We’ll have to see if the team elects to place him on season-ending injured reserve at some point in the near future.
Wilson’s is of course hoping to see improvement in neck from the time of his first MRI to now.
The Giants will get Andre Brown back from a fractured leg next weekend, so they can be cautious with Wilson and not rush him back from a potentially serious injury. New York also has Peyton Hillis, Brandon Jacobs and Michael Cox to lean on if needed.
