It seems like the New York Giants organization can’t catch a break. Last night they lost their sixth game in a row to start the season winless and lost some key players on both sides of the ball.
Now doctors may fear that running back David Wilson suffered spinal stenosis and could possibly miss the remainder of the season. I can already see the reaction on Eli’s face when he hears about this news, if he hasn’t heard about it already.
My buddy Brady was pretty much right when he told me that this season may be a rebuilding year for the Giants after last night’s lost to my Chicago Bears.
If Wilson does have spinal stenosis, he’ll have a bigger problem on his hands besides missing the rest of the season. He’s looking to get a second opinion from another doctor on Monday.
Spinal stenosis has been known to shorten careers of those players who have had it. Former Washington Redskins left tackle Chris Samuels had it and was forced to retire because of it.
If the second opinion does come back as a confirmation for spinal stenosis, then Wilson could have possibly played his last season of football.
David Wilson said the doctors think he has spinal stenosis … and he is worried that it could be season-ending. #NYG
