David Wilson (neck) will sit out the rest of the week and be reevaluated on August 4.
Wilson left Tuesday's practice early with a neck burner. He underwent initial tests yesterday, and it's been determined that he won't play in Sunday's preseason opener versus the Bills. Wilson will be looked at on Mondya by Dr. Frank Cammisa, the doctor who performed Wilson's neck surgery. The Giants are going to be extremely careful here. We don't advise using a re-draft pick on Wilson.

David Wilson will undergo tests after suffering a neck "burner" in Tuesday's practice.
NFL Network's Kimberly Jones reports the Giants "will be careful" with Wilson, which is probably the understatement of the century. It's extremely bad news for Wilson to be having any issues with his surgically-repaired neck so shortly after being cleared. If you're drafting early, take a late-round flier on Wilson at your own risk.

David Wilson left Tuesday's training camp practice early with a neck burner.
A "burner" or "stinger" is an injury to the nerves in the neck or shoulder that produce a stinging sensation. Obviously, with Wilson, this is a major concern and not something to take lightly. Following practice, coach Tom Coughlin said "we were all praying" Wilson wouldn't suffer any setbacks. This qualifies as one. Recovery time can range, but WIlson won't be cleared to return until he's experiencing zero neck or shoulder pain. We'll update Wilson when the Giants do.

The Newark Star-Ledger expects David Wilson to be part of the Giants' weekly game plan as long as he remains healthy.
Wilson opened training camp as the second-team tailback behind Rashad Jennings, and has reportedly "looked explosive" in the receiving game. With the Giants moving to a West Coast offense, Wilson has an opportunity for a bigger role in the passing game in addition to change-of-pace duties. Rookie Andre Williams is expected to push Jennings for red-zone carries.

David Wilson opened Giants camp as the second-team tailback.
He was quickly installed directly behind Rashad Jennings, and ahead of Peyton Hills and rookie Andre Williams. Per the Giants' website, Wilson "looked dynamic as ever" in practice, "making cuts like his old self and still looks like one of the most athletic players on the field." Only 23, Wilson has mouth-watering god-given gifts but football-playing deficiencies have removed him from the equation to start. He'll likely be a change-of-pace back this season.

Giants co-owner John Mara told reporters Thursday that the team expects David Wilson (neck) to be medically cleared for the season.
"We expect him to be playing," Mara said. "All signs are he'll be ready to go." Wilson's final pre-camp checkup is on Monday. ESPN's Dan Graziano reiterated on SportsCenter this afternoon that "signs point to David Wilson being cleared and joining that Giants' backfield." New York's backfield stable includes Rashad Jennings, Wilson, rookie Andre Williams, Peyton Hillis, Michael Cox, and Kendall Gaskins. Wilson is unlikely to accrue re-draft value this season, but the 23-year-old could be a drain on Jennings'.

David Wilson (neck) will next seek medical clearance on Monday, July 21.
Wilson initially sought clearance before minicamp. He didn't get it, but doctors still seemed upbeat about his chances of playing this year. Wilson handled "some reps" at spring practices, but needs clearance for contact work. If Wilson does get the green light, he'll be a change-of-pace back and kick returner.
