EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- New York Giants running back David Wilson left Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles at the end of the first quarter with a neck injury. The team described him as questionable to return.
Wilson scored the first points of the game on a five-yard touchdown run in the first quarter and celebrated with a double backflip in the end zone. He appeared to injure himself later in the quarter and was seen on the sideline flexing his hand. On the final play of the first quarter, he was tackled in the end zone but was awarded forward progress to the two-yard line and avoided a safety. After the play, he stayed down for a while before heading to the sideline and eventually the locker room.
Wilson returned to the sideline briefly, but as of the midway point of the second quarter had yet to return. If he does not, Brandon Jacobs and rookie Michael Cox would be the only two Giants' running backs still active for the game. Wide receiver Jerrel Jernigan has lined up as the kick returner on Wilson's absence so far.
