Report: Giants' David Wilson leaves practice with neck burner

Tuesday July 29th, 2014

New York Giants running back David Wilson had to leave practice with a neck burner, Paul Schwartz of the New York Post reports.

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons describes a burner, or stinger, as "an injury to the nerve supply of the upper arm, either at the neck or shoulder." The pain usually spreads from the shoulder to the hand.

Wilson had surgery in January for a spinal condition found after he injured his neck against the Eagles on Oct. 6. The running back tweeted on July 21 that he had been cleared for training camp.

In two NFL seasons, Wilson has six touchdowns and 504 yards on 115 carries.
