David Wilson was hurt when he ran head-down into the back of a teammate.
East Rutherford, NJ (SportsNetwork.com) -
New York Giants running back David Wilson left practice on Tuesday with what head coach Tom Coughlin called a "burner" and was sent to a hospital for tests on his neck.
Wilson announced July 21 that he was cleared to practice after undergoing neck surgery in January to fuse vertebrae and repair a herniated disk. The former first-round pick was hurt in a Week 5 loss to Philadelphia last season.
A "burner" is a term that can be used to describe a nerve injury causing a player discomfort or pain in their neck or arms.
