A huge part of the roster that this New York Giants team will be looking to add help too will be the halfback position. This team didn’t make much noise on the ground compared to previous years, which didn’t help out this offense at all.

Now running back David Wilson suffered a serious neck injury earlier in that year that could have ended his career. In October, doctors thought he had suffered spinal stenosis, which has cut a couple careers short. But nothing is set in stone just yet, there’s always a chance of receiving great news.

According to New York Giants general manager Jerry Reese, Wilson will undergo surgery on his neck. No idea why he didn’t go under the knife sooner.

Anyways, Wilson only played five games this year. He picked up 146 rushing yards and one rushing touchdown off 44 carries, which is now a career low. It was only his second year in the league and will be a shame if his career is cut short.
