Giants running back David Wilson is meeting with the surgeon who performed his career-threatening neck surgery, to find out of his recent burner is a career-threatening injury.
And practically no one, it seems, feels good about the meeting.
According to Bob Glauber of Newsday, a league source said Wilson’s career is “most likely” over because of the recent injury.
Wilson has been hopeful throughout, as he has to be. But the Giants made a contingency plan beyond hope, signing veteran back Rashad Jennings and drafting Andre Williams.
The hope is that Wilson hears from the doctor today that he should still be able to enjoy a full and fruitful life. Anything he hears about football feels so secondary, and it seems that’s the approach the Giants are taking as well.
