New York Giants hearing good things about David Wilson?


New York Giants running back David Wilson suffered a serious neck injury on October 6 and was out for the remainder of the season. I honestly thought that his career was over, but Wilson is refusing to let go of his professional football career.

ESPN’s Dan Graziano was asked by a fan if David Wilson would start if he’s healthy enough, or would Rashad Jennings carry the work-load as the number one halfback. Graziano responded with:

“The Giants signed Rashad Jennings to be their starting running back. They believe he’s ready at this stage of his career, after back up guys like Maurice Jones-Drew in Jacksonville and Darren McFadden in Oakland, to handle a starter’s workload.” Graziano via ESPN.com.

Graziano also notes that the New York Giants are hearing some good things about Wilson’s recover but they know they can’t count on him so they signed Jennings and brought back veteran running back Peyton Hillis. Hillis hasn’t done much since his breakout year in Cleveland back in 2010.

There still has to be some uncertainty about Wilson’s 2014 status.
