A day after New York Giants running back David Wilson suffered a neck stinger in practice, he will now be sitting out for at least the next week before seeing a specialist next Monday. Wilson underwent a lot of tests on Tuesday after practice, and Dr. Frank Cammisa will be evaluating Wilson on Monday.
Dr. Cammisa was the same doctor who looked at Wilson after the injury against the Philadelphia Phillies in Week 5. Cammisa also performed the surgery on Wilson last season, which hopefully for Wilson and the Giants won’t be necessary this time.
The injury for Wilson occurred after catching a shovel pass from Curtis Painter, and then as Wilson turned up field he ran into his Guard. Defenders would then surround Wilson, and in the aftermath Wilson no longer had the ball and was down on the field.
New York will be playing their pre-season opener against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, and with the injury to Wilson, it opens up chances for other players like Trindon Holliday, who without Wilson in the return game has a much better chance to make the team. Jerrel Jernigan can also impress the Giants coaching staff in the return game, with Wilson missing at least one pre-season game.
