Giants running back David Wilson out after being injured Tuesday in practice

Share/Save/Bookmark

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey — New York Giants running back David Wilson will not practice for the rest of the week and is out for Sunday's Hall of Fame game after suffering what the team called a "burner" in practice on Tuesday.

Late in Tuesday afternoon's practice, Wilson took a short pass from backup quarterback Curtis Painter and ran with his head down into the back of reserve guard Eric Herman.

Soon after, Wilson was taken off the field by an assistant trainer.

After practice, Giants coach Tom Coughlin said that Wilson suffered a "burner."

Wilson underwent fusion surgery to repair vertebrae and a herniated disc in his neck in January. Wilson had just received clearance to return to full action when the Giants began training camp last week.
