New York Giants running back David Wilson has been shut down for the season with a neck injury, and the team fears that his career may be over.
New York Giants running back David Wilson injured his neck for the second time in two years. His previous neck injury kept him out of the majority of the 2013 season. He will be placed on injured reserve.
Since the running back re-injured his neck, this is believed to be career-threatening. Wilson had undergone spinal fusion surgery in January.
The Giants struggled greatly with their running game last season, so this will be relatively big blow to the team if Wilson is forced to retire.
The 23-year-old had a promising career since being drafted in the first round of the 2012 draft, but his NFL future looks bleak.
However, they still have Rashad Jennings, who showed a lot of promise as a starter in Oakland. They also have rookie Andre Williams, who rushed for a touchdown in limited action in the NFL preseason opener.
