Giants give us a peek at David Wilson in OTAs

In May, you see things on a practice field that might not mean much in September.

But in the case of Giants running back David Wilson, any sighting is a good one.

On a day when their OTAs were closed to the “regular” media, the team-owned website tweeted out a video of Wilson taking a handoff from quarterback Josh Freeman.

Wilson is working his way back from offseason neck surgery, and the Giants have given themselves cover if he doesn’t come back. After signing Rashad Jennings in free agency and drafting Andre Williams in the fourth round (where they’ve found good backs before), they can view him as a bit of a bonus if he’s able to return.

But for a guy whose career might have appeared in jeopardy with the news of neck surgery, the simple act of taking a non-contact rep and getting through it is a positive sign.
