Wilson career over

The New York Giants press release explains that David Wilson will retire. “I’m thankful that I can literally walk away from the game and that I am healthy and capable of doing the same things I have done all my life, except play football,” said Wilson. “I always try to find the positive in everything. This morning when I saw Dr. Cammisa and Dr. Warren, I didn’t hear what I wanted to hear, but I expected that what they told me could be a possibility. I had played out both scenarios in my mind. I prayed this morning before I went to see them that they would tell me what God would tell me. He put His answer in them to relay to me.”

Dr. Russell Warren stated that he met with Dr. Frank Cammisa Jr, who is a spine specialtist at HSS (Hospital for Special Surgery), and both sat down to talk to Wilson about his examination which occurred early this morning.

Dr. Warren stated about David Wilson's injury: “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, Frank and I both told David he should not play football any more. 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.”

It has been reported that the word retire could not be used by David Wilson in the press release, because he couldn't claim injury protection on his salary if he officially retired.

Pyro's take: Its a sad situation for David Wilson and the New York Giants, but clearly Wilson has done the right thing by unofficially retiring.

Now its time for the camp battle to begin with Rashad Jennings and Andre Williams. In the Hall of Fame game, Williams finished the night with one touchdown and 48 yards on seven carries. While Jennings had 23 yards on seven carries, but also caught 3 passes for 20 yards.

Wilson shut-down

David Wilson's career looks bleaker by the moment. The burner he suffered has "red-flags" marked all over it, and team doctors decided it was time to shut Wilson down. According to WFAN’s Kim Jones, New York will “most likely” place the former first-round pick on injured reserve.

Bob Glauber NFL columnist for New York's Newsday, reported through his twitter feed (@BobGlauber), Asked league source if Giants RB David Wilson's career is over because of latest neck injury. His response: "Most likely."

Pyro's take: David Wilson was taunted as one of the most versatile athletes coming in as a first round draft choice by the New York Giants. He has been given chance after chance to clean-up his fumble issues, while trying to stay healthy. At this point of time, avoid him in all drafts, except maybe late in dynasty league, but by all accounts, it looks as though his career is over.

What this means for your draft, is that I would move up Rashad Jennings and Andre Williams in your tier rankings. Keep an eye on what Williams brings to the table in comparison to Jennings, as neither one are locked-in as the primary ball carrier.

Update: Wilson has been placed on Injured Reserve and will miss the rest of the 2014 season. Team doctors have also advised him that he should retire from the NFL after his latest injury.

Wilson will finish his two-year career with 504 yards rushing on 115 carries and five touchdowns. He had one 100 yard game, and one multiple touchdown game, in his 21 games played.

His excitement and explosive running ability will be missed, as he showed in his 84 yard touchdown run last August. He may have had a great turnaround this season, as Ben McAdoo likes to use short passes, and he would have made a great outlet for those schematics. We wish him the best in his future endeavors.

Wilson needs a miracle

Sources are stating that David Wilson needs a miracle to see the field again. "One person with knowledge of the running back's medical condition told NJ.com that Wilson "needs a miracle." Each source reporting to NJ.com had to remain autonomous, as they did not have permission. to talk freely about Wilson, and his injury status.

David Wilson has countered these reports by tweeting that "everything was fine" Wednesday night. The Giants, however, don't feel the same way.

On Monday, Wilson will be examined and that examination will determine the effect of his burner, and if David Wilson's career is over.

Pyro's take: Wilson will most likely need a miracle to see the field again, I hope he gets it. He is a tremendous athlete, but just has gotten a lot of bad breaks.First came fumbling problems, then the neck injury last season, after just five games.

In two seasons, he has rushed for 504 yards and five touchdowns. He has six receptions for 42 yards and another TD. Not the kind of numbers the Giants were expecting.

Wilson suffers a "burner"

During Tuesday’s practice Wilson suffered a “burner,” also known as a stinger, which is a pinched neck nerve that can cause muscle weakness and pain down an arm.

Kimberly Jones tweeted updates on HC Tom Coughlin’s reaction to the news:

NYG RB David Wilson didn't finish practice after sustaining a burner. Tom Coughlin: "We were all praying" for no setback. This could be one.

NYG RB David Wilson will undergo tests after suffering what Tom Coughlin called a "burner." I'm told NYG "will be careful" w/him.

Pyro's take: This is horrible news for Wilson, who just can't seem to stay healthy. He has become such an injury risk, and after this injury his chances of making an impact this season take a real hit. This gives a bigger opportunity for rookie running back Andre Williams, although the Giants are still in need of a change of pace back. Get better 22.

David Wilson expected to return

Running back from the New York Giants David Wilson has been reported to be ready to return next season according to Dan Graziano from ESPN. Graziano went on to say that Wilson is recovering "very well...and no reason to believe he won't be playing in 2014."

Wilson is back to lifting weights and working out just a few weeks after having the vertebrae in his neck operated on to repair a herniated disk. There is no actual return date set at the moment.

Pyro's take: The Giants would like to count on David Wilson to make a contribution to the team, as he had more back flips in the end zone than actual touchdowns. He finished the season in week five, with 146 yards on 44 attempts and one touchdown.

Wilson has been plagued with fumble and blocking issues, and just has not been able to showcase the overall talent that he has. This "dude" can make pro athletes look insanely dumb on the field.

Tom Coughlin has benched Wilson twice in the last two seasons, and he was buried on the depth chart, until a rash of injuries to the New York Giants running back roster last year, but unfortunately he was injured after a six carry 16 yard performance, and getting his lone touchdown.

David has burned his bridges in New York, and it will take a lot for the Giants to give him another shot at being the "Man" at running back

David Wilson to have neck surgery

New York Giants running back David Wilson will undergo surgery to fuse his vertebrae in order to repair the herniated disk in his neck. The surgery will take place at Hospital for Special Surgery on Jan. 16.

“We’re hopeful that David will be able to play for us again next year,’’ co-owner John Mara said, in a separate interview on WFAN. “Time will tell on that one.’’

Pyro's take: Yikes.

Isn't this what kept Peyton Manning out for an entire season? I was already down on David from a fantasy perspective, for obvious reasons - but now I just hope the best for this youngster brimming with talent.

Keep an eye on this one, maybe mostly to get a gauge on what the Giants plan to do at RB for 2014. Is Andre Brown their man, will they go to the draft or can we hope for a Peyton Hillis bounce back season?

David Wilson doubtful for Thursday Night

Giants coach Tom Coughlin said running back David Wilson, who experienced numbness around his neck area in Sunday’s 36-21 loss to the Eagles, has to undergo a battery of tests before he is cleared to play again.

Wilson’s status for Thursday night’s game at Chicago is unclear and Coughlin didn’t rule out signing a running back.

“(Wilson) has to have a full medical appraisal of exactly what happened,” Coughlin said today on a conference call. “We’ll wait and see on that. He did suffer some type of tingling and he was immediately pulled out of the game.”

Pyro's take: Wilson was finally showing fantasy owners some of that potential when he ran in a touchdown this week, and then he and all his owners did double back flips.

Unfortunately, the woes continued for Wilson as he was removed from the game with numbness in his neck, and now it looks like he is going to miss the Thursday Night game.

The Giants backfield is in disarray, and this just adds to the humiliation. The player that is going to reemerge here is Andre Brown, and he is already running and could be back in a couple weeks. There is not a lot of fantasy value in this backfield at the moment.

Giants sign Brandon Jacobs

Brandon Jacobs is headed back to the New York Giants.

NFL Media Inisider Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday the Giants are signing the veteran running back, according to a source involved in the process.

Jacobs was one of several running backs worked out by the Giants following David Wilson's two-turnover meltdown on Sunday night against the Dallas Cowboys. Tom Coughlin has indicated Wilson will remain in the mix, but the team was looking for another option beyond Da'Rel Scott.

Pyro's take: David Wilson and his opening day jitters have caused a reaction by the Giants as they have brought back Brandon Jacobs. David Wilson should feel happy that it was only Jacobs, who is by no means an explosive runner, and not someone else who would have had a better chance to eat into his carries.

This is still sending a message to the second year back that his fumbling is not going to be tolerated. The Giants could lean on Scott and Jacobs until the return of Andre Brown if Wilson continues to have ball security issues. If you are a Wilson owner this week is a huge week for him to show that he can make big plays, block and hold onto the football. Another bad week for Wilson could make him a major bust this season.

David Wilson now in line for goal line work

The Giants’ new goal-line back has a message for the rest of the NFL. Yes, David Wilson, big-play machine extraordinaire, may stand just 5-9, and he may be known as a speedster only.

But Wilson can run in between the tackles. And he says he knows how to get a tough yard.

“Don’t get confused by my size,” he said Friday. “I’m a physical guy, and I’m from the country. I grew up chopping wood and building houses with my dad, so I’m well put together.”

Wilson will get every chance to prove that early this season because of Andre Brown’s latest injury. On Thursday, the powerful Brown, the bruising half of what was supposed to be a fearsome 1-2 rushing attack for the Giants, fractured his left leg. A similar but more severe injury ended his breakout 2012 season.

“Going into it, (goal line) was mainly his job,” Wilson said. “We had a package where he was the guy to go in and get those tough yards. Now that he’s out, I’m gonna definitely have to step up.”

Pyro's take: David Wilson now has a lot more upside if you have not had your draft yet. Andre Brown had 8 rushing touchdowns in 10 games last season and now Wilson will begin chopping wood at the goal line.

We know Wilson has amazing speed, and the prospect of him getting 5-7 more touches a game will give him a chance to hit multiple home runs in a game for this year. Wilson is a great value as your second running back, or a starter if you wait go with receivers early.
