There was a huge scare in New York Giants training camp on Tuesday when the word began to spread that projected starting running back David Wilson had to leave practice early with what head coach Tom Coughlin called a “neck burner.” Given the fact that Wilson is making a comeback from a neck injury suffered last season, the concern was at an all-time high.
However, despite Coughlin calling the injury a “setback,” Wilson took to his twitter account on Wednesday to tell everyone that he has been examined by the doctors and that everything is okay in regards to his health.

If the docs did indeed give Wilson a clean bill of health, then that was a lot of prayers answered for this Giants team.
Although the team under the direction of new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo wants to implement a multiple running back system this season, Wilson is one of the key pieces to making this Giants offense click on all cylinders. While other backs will have a role, the third-year product from Virginia Tech is the leader of the pack.
