David Wilson pleased fantasy football owners on Sunday when he rushed for his first touchdown of the year and celebrated with not one, but two back-flips. However, the New York Giants‘ running back would later disappoint those same owners as a neck injury — not caused by the flips — forced Wilson out of Sunday’s game in the second quarter.
Thankfully reports after the game were positive, yet Wilson said something on Monday that has caused many heads to turn. Apparently Wilson claimed to have felt “some tingling” after taking the initial hit in Sunday’s game versus the Philadelphia Eagles. In a short week before Thursday night’s game, the Giants have a swift decision to make in regards to their second-year back.
It’s uncertain at this point what New York will do, but the Giants’ lack of running backs might just sway the Giants to play Wilson against the Chicago Bears in Week 6. Even though the G-Men have not signed a tailback, I fully expect Wilson to sit this week to undergo a few more tests and get some much-needed rest.
Moreover, this is definitely a situation to watch in the coming days as Wilson did show some promise in Week 5 with a touchdown and 16 rushing yards in a little less than two quarters of action.
