Tom Coughlin praying for David Wilson to return to New York Giants

David Wilson was drafted in the first round by the New York Giants to be the team’s future at the running back position, but after a scary neck operation last season, the outlook on Wilson’s career has taken a dramatic turn and it has Giants head coach Tom Coughlin praying for the former Virginia Tech standout.

“All in due time with David,” Coughlin said. “Just pray, you’re praying that he has a return to excellent health and that the doctors are totally convinced that he is recovered and ready to go. When that time comes, you’ll have another contributor who, if he gets a step, he’s gone.”

The Giants signed former Oakland Raiders back Rashad Jennings to be the featured back and there are rumors floating that the team will pursue signing the recently released Chris Johnson because of lingering concerns if Wilson will ever be the player they thought they were getting in the draft.

Don’t discount the power of prayer for Wilson in his comeback, but the Giants are preparing as if they won’t have him in the fold.
