Giants’ RB Wilson May Have Season Ending Neck Injury

David Wilson

New York Giants running back David Wilson suffered a neck injury last week.

Wilson said his doctors told him he might have spinal stenosis. The running back is going for a second opinion on Monday.

According to the Mayo Clinic, “Spinal stenosis is a narrowing of the open spaces within your spine, which can put pressure on your spinal cord and the nerves that travel through the spine. Spinal stenosis occurs most often in the neck and lower back.”

Wilson said the pain in his neck has ceased but the team doctors told him he still couldn’t play because one of his vertebrae is situated too closely to his spinal cord.

Coach Tom Coughlin spoke of the possibly season ending injury saying, “That’s not the way it was presented to me.”

Coughlin announced to the press that Wilson will may be returning in three to four weeks.

More details coming soon…
