Wilson will have another checkup before the start of training camp

David Wilson of the New York Giants did not receive medical clearance Wednesday to return to football after undergoing an MRI on his surgically-repaired neck. The Giants, however, say Wilson has made "significant" progress and expect him to be cleared for training camp

"There has been significant progress and healing since David had the fusion," said Dr. Russell Warren, the Giants’ team physician. "But the reality is it has only been four and one-half months since the surgery. We anticipate that when David is re-evaluated at the start of training camp he will be cleared at that point."

"Everything I got this morning was good news – there was nothing bad or negative," Wilson said. "I’m very pleased and very blessed for my healing process to continue."

Giants players will report to training camp on July 21.

Wilson had spinal fusion surgery performed January 16 by Dr. Frank Cammisa to repair a herniated disc in his neck that he suffered during a game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Giants have sounded increasingly optimistic about Wilson's prognosis in recent weeks.
