After a long, arduous recovery from a neck injury suffered last season that ended his 2013 campaign and threatened his career, Giants running back David Wilson must have been ecstatic when he was cleared to practice earlier this month.

But he suffered a neck stinger in practice Tuesday, and now, he won't practice the rest of this week and won't play in Sunday's Hall of Fame game before seeing the doctor who performed his neck surgery on Monday.

As the NY Post writes, "The results of that evaluation likely will chart the course ahead for Wilson, who could be facing the end of his NFL career at the age of 23."

Wilson, who underwent neck surgery in the offseason, was injured after catching a shovel pass from quarterback Curtis Painter. He turned up the field where he collided with the back of guard Eric Herman.

Now, Wilson has to wait a few long days before he can find out what kind of damage was done.

“We were praying that it would be not an issue, that he would be able to come back and just go to work and he was cleared, as you know,’’ coach Tom Coughlin said.
