Giants “ecstatic” with David Wilson’s progress

After last week’s breakout performance by running back David Wilson, the New York Giants are very happy about what they saw from their rookie back.

“He did a terrific job for us,” offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride said, per Newsday. “We’re ecstatic.”

Gilbride said he was impressed by Wilson’s 52-yard touchdown run, but his physical play made him happiest. “I didn’t know he’d be able to run over a linebacker the way he did, which was tremendous to see,” Gilbride said. “He’s just getting better and better. I think his comfort level is growing and he’s making fewer mistakes and his entry decisions in the run game are giving him a better chance to use the skills he has, which is his toughness and speed.”

There’s a good chance that Wilson will be forced to start for Ahmad Bradshaw this week.  Bradshaw hasn’t been practicing as he continues to nurse a sprained knee.
