David Wilson sent to hospital for battery of tests

After suffering a “burner” in practice Tuesday, the Giants are going to take no chances with running back David Wilson.

The team announced that Wilson was being taken to the Hospital for Special Surgery for a battery of tests and a complete workup. Wilson had neck surgery this offseason, so it’s an obvious concern.

They don’t know much at this point, but any injury anywhere near his neck is worrisome for the Giants.

We were all praying that it would be not an issue,” Giants coach Tom Coughlin said, via Tom Rock of Newsday

Rock also points out, the other name for a burner is “transient neurapraxia,” which doesn’t fit as neatly into the world of fantasy football.

Given what Wilson has gone through already, lending some gravity to the situation isn’t the worst idea.

    Why is it that people get defensive of Wilson? He’s either injured or putting the ball on the ground. For a 3rd year running back the bust label is well deserved.

    How many times do I need to type that this dude is all done in the NFL? He didn’t make it through his first practice. What are we talking about? Practice? Man, we’re talking about practice….

    If you’re “praying”, why are you sending him to the hospital for test? Religious people should let god take the wheel and free up hospitals and doctors offices for people who use their brain.

    I feel bad for the kid. He loves the game. I think people ripping in him are scum.

    I believe I said in this very forum: “Call me after he (Wilson) takes his first hit…”

    Evidence why you don’t draft a RB in the first round.
