Giants RB David Wilson out for 2014, says he's thankful to 'literally walk away from the game'

The Giants placed RB David Wilson @4stillRunning on sesason-ending injured reserve today, according to ESPN's Josina Anderson. Wilson suffered a "burner" last week as he attempted to return to Giants practice following a season-ending neck injury in 2013. Wilson experienced numbness in his hands and feet, consistent with nerve damage in the spinal cord. Team doctors advised Wilson to never return to football, and it appears extremely likely that the 23-year-old Wilson's career is over. "I'm thankful that I can literally walk away from the game," WIlson said in a statement.

Fantasy Analysis:

This news is not unexpected, but still very sad for Wilson, whose career is now over before it really began. Rashad Jennings @RashadJennings will start for the Giants, and rookie RB Andre Williams, who impressed in the Giants' first preseason game, looks to be slotted for the No. 2 role. RB Peyton Hillis @thepeytonhillis may be in the mix as well. It's now safe to drop Wilson in all leagues, including dynasty.
