Poor play followed by a career-threatening neck injury ended his 2013 campaign, but now the dynamic RB says he’s back with a clean bill of health.
Giants RB David Wilson announced on Twitter and Instagram that he has a clean bill of health after a CT scan indicated a full recovery from a neck injury that ended his disappointing 2013 campaign.
Wilson started 2013 by fumbling twice in the opening game, which led to his benching. Wilson ended his season with 146 yards rushing and only 3.3 yards per carry. His lone touchdown of the season came in a loss to the Eagles on October 6 – he would suffer a neck injury later in the game and missed the rest of the season.
Depending on when he officially returns to the team, Wilson will be expected to compete for the starting RB job with free agent pickup Rashad Jennings.
Wilson was drafted by the Giants in the first round of the 2012 draft. He exploded onto the scene as a kick returner, leading the league in KR yards in his rookie season. He also scored 5 TDs as an offensive weapon and recorded an impressive 5.0 yards per carry.
