David Wilson could miss multiple weeks
Giants running back David Wilson left Sunday's game in the second quarter with a neck injury and never returned to the field.
Although Wilson described the move as being an "extra precaution" and that he'd "be back next week," that is looking unlikely especially considering the Giants play on Thursday night against the Bears.
Earlier today, Ralph Vacchiano of the NY Daily News tweeted that Wilson has "some kind of a tingling" in his neck, which is obviously not a good thing.
Based on this tweet from Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports 1, Wilson may end up missing more than just this week.

Wilson leads the team in rushing with only 146 yards on 44 carries, 3.3 yards per carry, and has more fumbles lost (two) than touchdowns scored (one).
While Brandon Jacobs could get a significant workload, he is averaging only 2.2 YPC and he does not a great matchup this week.
