David Wilson has been upbeat throughout his comeback from spinal fusion surgery, even after his “burner” earlier this week.
The Giants apparently do not share that optimism.
According to Jordan Raanan and Conor Orr of NJ.com, the Giants consider him a long shot to return to the field and one source familiar with his condition said he “needs a miracle” to come back.
Wilson tweeted Wednesday night that “everything was fine,” which may be true in the global, not football-centric case.
He’ll see a spinal specialist Monday, but the Giants seem to be bracing themselves for the possibility that Wilson might not return at all.
You could argue they did already, signing workhorse back Rashad Jennings this offseason.
But at this point, the concern should be with Wilson’s well-being, and any football considerations should come well after that.
