A source told ESPN's Adam Schefter on Thursday that Giants running back David Wilson is ahead of schedule in his rehab following spinal fusion surgery and is expected to be ready for training camp.
The majority of Wilson's 2013 season was washed away due to a neck injury he suffered in Week 5. He didn't play after that, and underwent a spinal fusion to repair a herniated disc on Jan. 16.
Who is the source? WIlson's agent? Although Wilson was cleared to work out last week, Wilson is trying to come back from a major surgery, one to not only fix a disc problem but also spinal stenosis. And the Giants' general manager said last month that he doesn't think he can count on Wilson being healthy next season. Wilson still has plenty of dynasty value because he is only 22 years old, but his re-draft value is down in the dumps right now.
Running back is a huge area of need for the Giants. They would do themselves a favor by re-signing Andre Brown for cheap.
