"The doctor said that I was good to go. I’m back to normal. I can play regular football with no special equipment, no medication, or anything else," Wilson said.
The third-year pro added he's not worried about his stamina or taking that first big hit.
"No real concerns," he said. "I’m just excited, most definitely. I’m ready to get back out there and compete. I love competition so I haven’t been sitting on the couch. As I came out here and got started with training camp, I knew that my appointment was [Monday] and training camp is [Tuesday], so I prepared myself. Like I said, you want to be prepared to go out there and have fun."
Wilson will compete for snaps with Rashad Jennings and rookie Andre Williams.
In two seasons and 21 games, Wilson has 115 carries for 504 yards (4.4 avg.) and five touchdowns with six grabs for 42 yards and another score.
"We expect him to be playing ... all signs are he'll be ready to go," Mara told reporters, per Newsday.
However, that was before they drafted
Williams could also develop as a rushing downs type of back though he'll have to make strides in training camp first.
Wilson had a season-ending neck injury in Week 5 last year and underwent surgery this offseason. If healthy, he would compete with Rashad Jennings and rookie Andre Williams for playing time.
