NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - New York Giants top running back David Wilson needed neck surgery and his future in football is uncertain.
Giants general manager Jerry Reese disclosed the news Thursday during a radio interview with WFAN in New York City.
New York's first-round draft pick in 2012, Wilson was hurt on Oct. 6 after being tackled coming out of his own end zone in a home game against Philadelphia.
Wilson will have a fusion of the vertebrae to repair the herniated disc in his neck. The procedure will be performed by Dr. Frank Cammisa at the Hospital of Special Surgery on Jan. 16.
