David Wilson was ruled out of Thursday night's game against the Bears with a neck injury.
Now, it appears that the neck injury could be season ending.
The news comes from Dan Graziano who sent out the following tweets from speaking with Wilson:
Giants' David Wilson says he's worried his neck injury might be season-ending. Second opinion Monday.
Wilson stated that the initial diagnosis was spinal stenosis, which occurs when there is a narrowing of the spinal canal. Though he currently feels no pain, the danger arises out of the fact that an x-ray shows a vertebra that is too close to his spinal cord.
Players have played in spite of it in the past according to Graziano but it will take a second opinion to settle whether it is safe for Wilson to play football this year. It has been a disappointing season for Wilson (and the Giants) as the team had hoped that he would step up and be the number one running back for the team.
The silver lining for the Giants is that Brandon Jacobs played very well in Wilson's place and the Giants may have a legitimate ground game while Wilson figures out his next step.
