Neck injury to New York Giants' David Wilson unlikely to be serious

The New York Giants and running back David Wilson got a scare earlier today when the fumble-happy halfback went down after suffering some type of head/neck injury.

The incident occurred in the second quarter on a near safety and Wilson remained down in the end zone for a few moments before getting to his feet, though, clearly in pain and slightly dazed when he did so.

Wilson quickly made his way to the locker room where he was deemed to have a ‘neck’ injury by the Giants’ medical staff, though no further mention or elaboration to the injury was given. There was an initial fear of a potential concussion, but Wilson seemingly avoided that and any serious damage as according to Mike Garafalo, Wilson avoided major injury:

Word on David Wilson is it’s not believed to be a serious injury. Being held out for precautionary reasons. More tests today/Mon, I’m sure.

The Giants have kept their starting running back on the sidelines since the injury and deemed him out as a neck injury isn’t anything you want to play around with.

Brandon Jacobs has been woeful as his replacement.
