-GIANTS RB DAVID WILSON TO HAVE NECK SURGERY, FUTURE IN FOOTBALL UNCERTAIN-
New York Giants running back David Wilson needs neck surgery and his future in football is uncertain.
Giants general manager Jerry Reese disclosed the news Thursday during a radio interview with WFAN in New York City.
New York’s first-round draft pick in 2012, Wilson was hurt on Oct. 6 after being tackled coming out of his own end zone in a home game against Philadelphia.
Wilson will have a fusion of the vertebrae to repair the herniated disc in his neck. The procedure will be performed on Jan. 16.
"You have to look at him differently, because he’s got the whole neck issue hovering over him right now," Reese said. "So he’s got to come back and be healthy, No. 1. He’s planning to have surgery, and we’ll see how that comes out. Our medical staff feels like he’ll be ready to play this fall, but the neck and back — that’s pretty tricky. So you never know."
Wilson played five games this past season. He was eventually put on season-ending injured reserve Nov. 7.
Wilson finished with 44 carries for 146 yards and a touchdown. He caught two passes for 8 yards and had nine kickoff returns for a 24.7-yard average. (Photo: USA TODAY Sports)
