New York Giants Running Back David Wilson’s Career May Be Over
New York Giants running back David Wilson’s devastating injury may prove to become life threatening.
According to ESPN’s Josina Anderson, Wilson who had spinal fusion surgery in January had some trouble after collision in practice with guard Eric Herman and will now be looked at by his surgeon to make sure there is no more additional damage to the back.
Bob Glauber of Newsday, meanwhile is reporting that a league source said Wilson’s career is “most likely” over because of the recent injury.
Update: Wilson’s doctors have recommended that he not return to football after the injury.
ESPN reports the statement from his doctor.
“David has diffuse cervical stenosis. He had a disc removed and a fusion in January. In light of last week’s episode of symptoms, sensory and motor, [Dr.] Frank [Camissa Jr., who performed Wilson’s surgery] and I both told David he should not play football any more,” team physician Dr. Russell Warren said in a statement.
“We let David know that by playing, he would be putting himself at risk for more episodes like last week or perhaps something more serious. “
Giants are prepared with life after Wilson as they signed Rashad Jennings and Peyton Hillis in the offseason.
