David Wilson’s future in New York just got a little murkier today when Giants GM Jerry Reese revealed the former first-round pick will undergo neck surgery next week.
Wilson will need a fusion of the vertebrae to repair a herniated disc in his neck, according to the Giants general manager. It will take place on January 16th.
Reese indicated the Giants wouldn’t be able to count on Wilson being ready for 2014.
“I don’t think so,” Reese said. “No. 1 we just want David to get healthy. If he gets healthy, that’s a bonus. But I don’t think we can go into next season saying ‘David will be ready to go. He’ll be our No. 1 back.’ Necks can be tricky. You have to be careful with those things.”
