New York Giants' news, 10/30: David Wilson's future still uncertain

When will we see David Wilson running again? - Wesley Hitt

New York Giants' headlines for Wednesday, 10/29.

New York Giants running back David Wilson will undergo tests next week on his injured neck, after which general manager Jerry Reese said the team will "make some decisions" about the 2012 first-round pick's future.

Reese was asked if he worried that Wilson's spinal stenosis was career-threatening.

"I’m not a doctor so I don’t want to stand up here and say something is career-threatening, but anytime you have a situation with your neck and your spine, those are some serious things that you need to take into consideration," Reese said.

Speaking of Wilson, obviously the Giants' decision to go with him as their lead back this season has not worked out. On WFAN Tuesday, Mike Francesa asked head coach Tom Coughlin if the Giants miscalculated what Wilson was ready to handle.

"I don't think so at all," Coughlin said. "He's a second-year player and it's his time to go. We fully prepared him and a few things haven't worked out or didn't work out as well as we would have liked. He was ready to play, had to play."

Reese: Super Bowl countdown calendar staying

In a gimmicky move, the general manager put a Super Bowl countdown calendar in the Giants' locker room at the beginning of training camp. Even at 2-6, Reese says he doesn't regret placing it and won't remove it.

"It has even more emphasis for me now. I think today is 95 days. That should put us on notice even more that the time is running out and we don’t have time to have any hiccups down the stretch," Reese said.

Around The Inter-Google

Dallascowboys.com is asking burning questions for each NFC East team at the season's mid-way point. In a similar vein, NFL.com offers a look at all 32 NFL teams at the halfway point.

Mathias Kiwanuka said Tuesday on ESPN that he feels like "the stars are lining up" for the Giants.

Reading into Reese's Tuesday press conference New York Post columnist Steve Serby came away with the impression that Reese believes Coughlin is the right coach for the Giants.

If the season ended today the Giants would have the fourth pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Forbes says that Reese, at least in terms of games played, is among the league's worst-drafting GMs.
