Giants head coach Tom Coughlin didn't draw out the drama. He announced Tuesday that running back David Wilson won't play Thursday against the Bears due to his neck injury. It's unknown if he will be able to play in Week 7. It was reported Tuesday that Wilson is receiving a second opinion on his injury.
When asked who will start in place of Wilson, offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride said, "I guess it'll be Brandon (Jacobs)."
Jacobs is averaging 2.2 yards per carry in four games. Despite his short-term job title, he should not be in your lineup on a short week, on the road, against the Bears. Da'Rel Scott , who the Giants re-signed on Monday, will also see some work. It all means Eli Manning will probably chuck it another 45-50 times this week.
