Giants' Wilson cleared for return

 

The Sports Network

East Rutherford, NJ (SportsNetwork.com) - New York Giants running back David Wilson announced Monday that he is cleared to return to football activities.

Wilson posted on his Twitter and Instagram accounts, "Just got cleared ..... #cleared for everything now the story continues #pocketrocket."

In January, Wilson underwent neck surgery, putting his career in doubt. The procedure was a fusion of the vertebrae to repair a herniated disc.

The first-round draft pick in 2012 out of Virginia Tech suffered the injury last season during a Week 5 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. After being inactive for three weeks, Wilson was placed on injured reserve Nov. 7.

He finished the campaign with 44 rushing attempts for 146 yards and a touchdown, along with two catches for eight yards. In two seasons with the club, Wilson has 504 yards and six touchdowns rushing. He also has a receiving TD.

The Giants begin training camp on Tuesday.
