Good morning, New York Giants fans! The first practice of 2014 training camp is just hours away, and here are a few items to keep you entertained.

David Wilson 'good to go'

Running back David Wilson, cleared Monday following offseason neck surgery, said that he is "good to go."

"I'm back to normal. I can play regular football with no special equipment, no medication, or anything else," Wilson said. "No real concerns. I'm just excited, most definitely. I'm ready to get back out there and compete."

The 2012 first-round pick has yet to really live up to that status.

"I think it's time," Wilson said. "Like I said, I've been preparing. Coming off an injury, missing a lot of games, I'm definitely anxious to get out there and make plays and score a touchdown and be out there and have fun and win games with my team."

Head coach Tom Coughlin knows how anxious Wilson is to play.

"He's an amazing kid. I know we're talking about a very, very serious injury, but about two weeks after he's had the surgery he's in the weight room and I have to slow him down. He's over there doing stuff with his legs. ‘David, do you have any idea what just took place here?' Hopefully, hopefully it will go this way as we bring him along," Coughlin said. "He wants to do everything now. He's out there running back and forth like it's nobody's business."

Eli Last Man Standing From 2004

The retirement of Chris Snee means that quarterback Eli Manning is the last player left from his rookie season of 2004.

"When you win championships, you have a special bond with those teammates...You look around and you see less and less guys that were from that era and share that connection with. That's just football. They say the average career is 3.5 years and you get a lot of people in and out," Manning said. "As you get older in your career, you see more and more of it, a lot of new faces. You have to keep going and keep working and make new connections and new friends and new players and keep trying to have great teams."
