Giants RB David Wilson’s NFL Career is Over Due to Neck Injuries
Giants running back David Wilson won't play another down in the NFL. After just two pro seasons with New York, Wilson is retiring from the game, after doctors advised him that his case of spinal stenosis would make it life-threatening for him to get hit. Wilson is just 23 years old, and on Wednesday, he delivered a heartfelt, emotional message at the Giants facility, explaining his situation.
As he cried, Wilson said, "Don't for a second, y'all, think I'm pitying myself or sad. I got to live my dream. "I'll set another dream and be great at that. I always look to be great at whatever I do." He called them tears of joy.
