Found September 28, 2012 on NFL Draft Zone:
In the preseason, David Wilson the former first round pick, looked like a player who was going to exploit many defenses, but after a fumble he had in the Dallas Cowboys game Wilson continues to fall down the depth chart.  After the Giants had an injury to Ahmad Bradshaw, they turned to former practice squader Andre Brown, who was released by the Giants and then re-signed.  They skipped over their former first round draft pick Wilson, and now Wilson acknowledges that he’s temporarily lost the trust of the Giants coaching staff. Wilson was a major part of the game plan before fumbling against the Cowboys, but that’s not the reason he’s sitting. He’s still learning the nuances of pass protection and mastering the playbook while Andre Brown took advantage of his opportunity. He is currently, third on the depth chart, but will need to make the most of his opportunities when given them.  If he doesn’t he could keep slipping, because Andre Brown looked very good last week for the Giants.
