New york Giants running back David Wilson received some very good news earlier today after visiting with noted spinal surgeon Dr. Robert Watkins for a second opinion on his neck.
Wilson, who had initially been diagnoses with spinal stenosis and a herniated disc, will not need season-ending surgery to correct his problem, per a report by Fox Sports’ Mike Garafolo.
Wilson will reportedly continue to receive treatment in hopes of getting the disc issue to calm down to the point where he can eventually return to the field. In the meantime, he will reportedly be out of action until at least after the bye week, if not longer.
With Wilson, Da’Rel Scott and Brandon Jacobs all ailing – Scott and Jacobs have hamstring issues, though Scott’s is said to be more serious–the Giants will be hosting a workout on Tuesday for several running backs including former Giant DJ Ware; Jeremy Wright, who was with the Giants in minicamp; and Peyton Hillis, formerly of Cleveland and Tampa Bay.
