The New York Giants issued an update Wednesday morning on running back David Wilson, who left Tuesday's practice with a 'neck burner.' Wilson, per the Giants will not practice the rest of the week and will undergo further testing next week. The update, in its entirety, read as follows:

David did undergo the battery of tests last night at Hospital for Special Surgery. He will not practice the remainder of the week, nor will he play in the game on Sunday. He will be examined and evaluated by Dr. Frank Cammisa at HSS on Monday (8/4). Cammisa, chief of spine services at HSS, is the specialist who performed the fusion on David on January 16.

Wilson, of course, underwent spinal fusion surgery to repair a herniated disc in his neck in January. The injury apparently occurred Tuesday when he rammed head-first into the back of offensive lineman Eric Herman after catching a shovel pass from quarterback Curtis Painter.
