East Rutherford, NJ (SportsNetwork.com) - New York Giants running back David
Wilson will undergo neck surgery whose nature puts the future of his football
career in doubt.
Giants GM Jerry Reese made the announcement on Thursday.
Wilson is set to have a fusion of the vertebrae to repair a herniated disc in
his neck. The procedure will be performed by Dr. Frank Cammisa at the Hospital
of Special Surgery on Jan. 16.
The first-round draft pick in 2012 out of Virginia Tech suffered the injury
during a Week 5 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. After being inactive for
three weeks, Wilson was placed on injured reserve Nov. 7.
He finished the campaign with 44 rushing attempts for 146 yards and a
touchdown, along with two catches for eight yards.
