Giants RB David Wilson 'needs a miracle'


Giants RB David Wilson 'needs a miracle'

Wilson will need "a miracle" to return to football, a person familiar with Wilson's medical situation told Wilson said in a tweet Wednesday night that "everything is fine," but that doesn't seem to be the case, according to's source. Wilson suffered a season-ending neck injury in Week 5 last year. He was cleared to participate in Giants camp, but left practice Tuesday with a "burner" - an injury indicative of damaged nerve tissue in his surgically repaired neck.

Fantasy Analysis:

Sadly, it looks like WIlson's NFL career may have run its course. Injuries of this type are extremely dangerous, especially for running backs. The Giants will be very, very careful with allowing WIlson to return to contact drills, let alone regular-season action. As of now, Giants RB Rashad Jennings @RashadJennings appears to have a lock on the starting job. Jennings is a three-down back, and will get the bulk of the carries in New York. His value should be boosted a bit by this news. Wilson should not be drafted.
