The New York Giants have David Wilson and Andre Brown are both currently listed as first-team running backs. Unfortunately, both can’t be starting running backs unless they were going to some multiple back formation.

Giants general manager Jerry Reese told Colin Cowherd on his syndicated radio show that Wilson will start at running back for the Giants.

“We expect [Wilson] to be our starter, and be in the backfield with Andre Brown, who had a terrific season going last year until he got hurt,” Reese said. “[Brown's] had the injury bug a little bit since he’s been in the league. But if he can stay healthy, and David Wilson comes on like we expect him too, we think we can have a pretty dynamic backfield.”

You could probably expect the Giants to rely heavily on a two-back system.

Now that we know Wilson will be filling Ahmad Bradshaw’s shoes, Reese said Giants fans can expect wide receiver Victor Cruz to play in week one against the Dallas Cowboys.

“We’re hopeful of that,” Reese said. “He’s day to day, and he’s got a strong will, and he says he’ll be ready, and I believe him.”
