The New York Giants need help at running back. They expected David Wilson to replace Ahmad Bradshaw and be the guy this year but after fumbling twice against the Dallas Cowboys he has proven himself to be a liability with the ball in his hands, but it was just two out of six turnovers.
“They’re not going to play unless they can hang onto the ball,” head coach Tom Coughlin said, via the NYDN. “It’s demoralizing to the whole team.”
Coughlin also said he thinks that Wilson can do better.
“He can,” Coughlin said. “He can run with two hands on the ball just like anybody else.”
That won’t stop the Giants from working out players though, they’re bringing in Brandon Jacobs for a work out and also plan to work out former Denver Broncos and Baltimore Ravens running back Willis McGahee on Tuesday. The workout had been planned since before the six turnover fiasco in the season opener.
Giants will work out former Broncos and Ravens RB Willis McGahee on Tuesday, per source. Workout planned since Friday.

Wilson is remaining optimistic however.
“It was a tough situation to be in,” Wilson said. “I’m just going to keep working hard. I’m at the bottom now. Nowhere to go but up.”
