New York Giants running back David Wilson will not practice for the rest of the week and is out for Sunday's Hall of Fame game after suffering what the team called a "burner" in practice on Tuesday.
Late in Tuesday afternoon's practice, Wilson took a short pass from backup quarterback Curtis Painter and ran with his head down into the back of reserve guard Eric Herman.
Soon after, Wilson was taken off the field by an assistant trainer.
After practice, Giants coach Tom Coughlin said that Wilson suffered a "burner."
Wilson underwent fusion surgery to repair vertebrae and a herniated disc in his neck in January. Wilson had just received clearance to return to full action when the Giants began training camp last week.
Danville native David Wilson reportedly left New York Giants practice early Tuesday with what coach Tom Coughlin described as a neck burner.
The 2012 first-round draft pick out of Virginia Tech appeared in only five games last season because of a neck injury. He underwent neck surgery earlier this year, and was cleared to practice last week.
New York Giants running back David Wilson has been cleared for contact work after recovering from neck surgery.
Although he attended offseason workouts with the Giants, Wilson was held back from many activities by the team's medical staff. On Monday, he said, "I got cleared this morning ... that was the best news I'd gotten in a while."
New York's first training camp practice is Tuesday, and the Giants play on Aug. 3 in the Hall of Fame game against Buffalo.
Wilson said the doctors gave him permission to return with no restrictions: "I can play regular football with no special equipment, no medication, or anything else."
