David Wilson is expected to be cleared for contact by start of camp

Loaded with unrealized potential, Giants running back David Wilson has rushed for a total of 504 yards in 21 games played over two seasons in the NFL.

Despite playing a full 16 games as a rookie, a first-game fumble kept Wilson in coach Tom Coughlin's doghouse as he carried the ball a mere 18 times in his first 10 regular-season games.

In the final four games that year, however, Wilson carried the ball 43 times for 247 yards and three touchdowns with a kickoff returned for a score. It appeared that 2013 would be a breakout year for Wilson with Ahmad Bradshaw no longer on the roster.

While a neck injury that eventually led to surgery limited him to only three games in 2013, his (health) outlook for the 2014 continues to improve.

Per Ralph Vacchiano of the NY Daily News, Wilson is expected to be ready for the start of training camp and is currently taking reps on the field in the team's OTAs.

With the G-Men signing Rashad Jennings in free agency and drafting Boston College's Andre Williams, it's hard to count on Wilson getting a large enough workload for a breakout season.
