A report recently sufficed stating that Giants running back David Wilson is recovering very well from neck surgery and is expected to be ready to go for training camp.
Head coach Tom Coughlin was asked on Friday if he believes Wilson will be ready to go.
“I really don’t know the answer to that question,” Coughlin said today at the scouting combine in Indianapolis. “I think a lot has to do with his attitude, the way he feels, the way the doctors and trainers obviously feel. He’s not going to be put out there unless he’s ready for that. I’m not even sure how he’s going to be limited in the spring. I saw him about four or five days ago and he’s that same bouncy personality. He’s very pleased with where he’s at right now. He’s able to do work with his legs for example, not as a heavy-duty thing but in a lighter capacity. He’s excited about that. He looks good, he feels good. He doesn’t have a lot of pain. I’m excited about that.
“But there’s no question that … Forget about that he could be a difference-maker on the yeam, it’s the idea that is he going to be healthy enough to be able to withstand. That will be the doctors’ and our main concern. We’re not going to put him out there unless he really, really believes in himself again and the doctors believe he’ll be ready to go.”
