Giants coach Tom Coughlin told reporters that Wilson was forced to exit practice after suffering a neck burner, according to NFL Media's Kimberly Jones. A burner is a nerve injury resulting from trauma to the neck and shoulder. The primary symptom is burning pain radiating down the arm.
Coughlin said "we were all praying that it wouldn't be an issue." Coughlin spoke with the media before receiving an update from team medical staff. Jones later reported that Wilson will undergo tests, and the Giants "will be careful" with the running back.
The burner acts as another reminder that the Giants need to be prepared in the event Wilson can't make it back. The running back depth chart currently includes Rashad Jennings, Peyton Hillis, Michael Cox and Andre Williams.
