EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- It remains to be seen, since the New York Giants have only three days to prepare for their next game, whether running back David Wilson will be ready to play Thursday night in Chicago. Wilson left Sunday's loss to the Eagles at the end of the first quarter with a neck injury and did not return, but he seems to think he'll be fine. He tweeted shortly after the game:
Wish we can win for all our supporters other than that I feel good passed all test. The Dr. Just taking extra precaution be back next week

Wilson hasn't had the season he expected to have, but he looked good and was featured prominently in the offense in the first quarter Sunday, scoring the game's first touchdown. The Giants' offense will function better when and if it can make him a consistently important part of it.
Not too much injury news out of this game otherwise for the Giants. Defensive ends Mathias Kiwanuka, Jason Pierre-Paul and Justin Tuck all left the game briefly in the first half for some reason or another, but all three returned before halftime. Long-snapper Zak DeOssie and safety Cooper Taylor went for X-rays after the game, but there was no word on what those injuries were or how serious they might be. Cornerback Corey Webster was inactive, missing his third straight game with a groin injury. Wide receiver Louis Murphy was inactive due to an ankle injury.
