David Wilson, Brandon Myers Injury Updates

New York Giants RB David Wilson suffered a neck injury during a touchdown run in Sunday’s loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, and the injury could be a severe one for the Giants starting RB. He was held out of practice yesterday amid rumors that there was something seriously amiss with him, and it was reported this morning that David Wilson would need a second opinion on his neck injury. The need for a second opinion is never a good sign, as we saw with Brian Hoyer’s season-ending ACL tear last week. Let’s hope Wilson’s neck checks out fine, but it is possible that he could miss a few weeks with this ailment.

At this rate, I highly doubt David Wilson ends up playing this week against the Chicago Bears (it’s on Thursday, too), which would be a crippling blow to a Giants offense that has two poor backup RBs and an awful, hobbled interior OL. ESPN NFL Nation’s Dan Graziano reports that Wilson, as expected, did not participate in practice today, but at least he was able to observe practice in a uniform. That’s an inkling of good news for the Giants, but it certainly isn’t much.

New York Giants tight end Brandon Myers has been awful ever since posting two big games in the first two weeks of the season, as he was only able to haul in two passes against the Eagles on Sunday. Myers was unable to practice yesterday with an ankle injury, but the New York Daily News’s Ralph Vacchiano reports that Myers was able to return to practice today. If he was unable to practice today, then Myers’s status would have been in huge doubt for Thursday’s big game against the Bears.
