New York Giants running back David Wilson is still dealing with a neck injury. According to Ralph Vacchiano of the Daily News, Wilson has "some kind of tingling" in his neck. Head coach Tom Coughlin says that Wilson will require a full evaluation before deciding if he will play the Chicago Bears on Thursday Night Football.
Wilson suffered the neck injury in Sunday's loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. He has disappointed this season, recording just 146 yards and one touchdown on 46 carries in the first five games.
Fantasy impact: With such a short week to heal up, it's unlikely that Wilson will be cleared in time to suit up on Thursday. That leaves the running back depth down to Brandon Jacobs, who plodded his way to 37 yards on 11 carries against the Eagles. The Giants are a complete mess in the running game, and all backs should be hands-off in fantasy for the time being. Wilson is shaping up as one of the biggest fantasy busts of the 2013 season.
