New York Giants president John Mara expects running back David Wilson to be ready for the start of the season, according to Tom Rock of Newsday.

Wilson, entering his third season, underwent neck surgery in January to treat heal his spinal stenosis condition, a narrowing of the spine.

Wilson suffered his injury in a home game Oct. 6 against the Philadelphia Eagles, cutting his season short — the Virginia Tech product saw action in just five games last season. While his recovery had been going fine since the January surgery, he was not cleared to participate in the team's June OTA's. 

In a little over one year of action on the field, Wilson has recorded 504 yards on 115 carries with five touchdowns.

The Giants bolstered their running back depth this offseason, signing veterans Rashad Jennings and Peyton Hillis and drafting Andre Williams, who rushed for over 2,000 yards last season at Boston College.
