David Wilson Out After Neck Injury
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Running back David Wilson’s second season with the New York Giants is over and his career might be in doubt because of a neck injury.
The Giants placed their 2012 first-round draft pick on season-ending injured reserve Thursday, roughly a month after he was hurt against the Eagles.
Wilson sustained a herniated disk and tests showed some narrowing of his spinal column. An examination Monday showed improvement in the herniation, but not enough to let him play.
Coach Tom Coughlin does not think that Wilson will need surgery.
The Giants also placed defensive tackle Shaun Rogers (knee) on injured reserve. The team activated running back Andre Brown from recallable injured reserve and defensive tackle Markus Kuhn from the reserve/physically unable to perform list.
