Giants expect RB Wilson back after successful neck surgery
Before the start of the 2013 season, NY Giants running back David Wilson was viewed as a legitimate breakout star candidate. His blazing speed and excellent agility were highly touted, and he was supposed to be a big part of the Giants offense. However, that theory never came to fruition. Not only did Wilson get off to an awful start in 2013, he ended up missing the majority of the season due to a neck injury.
Fast forward to now. Wilson is working out and lifting weights, just a couple weeks after successful surgery to repair a herniated disk in his neck. Before the surgery, Wilson’s NFL future seemed a bit cloudy.
“ESPN’s Dan Graziano reports that Wilson is recovering “very well” from his neck surgery and that there’s “no reason to believe he won’t be playing in 2014.”
Obviously Wilson’s role in the offense in 2014 will be 100% dependent on his physical health, and I am sure the Giants aren’t going to rush him back or take any unnecessary chances. Wilson is still young enough to get back to top form and hopefully become the player everyone thought he would be in 2013.
