RB David Wilson Not Yet Cleared For Return

Giants running back David Wilson did not receive clearance from doctors following a re-evaluation, roughly a month after sustaining a neck injury against the Eagles, Conor Orr of the Newark Star Ledger reports.

The situation figured to be a delicate one, especially when stenosis and herniated discs are involved. The Giants shelved Mathias Kiwanuka for almost an entire season with a similar injury.

“The determination was made that while there has been significant improvement with the herniation, Wilson is still not clear to resume football activities,” the team said in a statement. “Wilson will undergo another evaluation in several weeks.”

“We’re anxious to say that he’s perfectly healthy, to be honest with you,” Tom Coughlin said today. “We don’t even want to think about the other part of it.”

Wilson had an MRI at the Hospital for Special Surgery today. He was also examined by the team’s physicians, Dr. Russell Warren and Dr. Frank Cammisa.
