According to Tom Rock of Newsday, New York Giants’ president John Mara has indicated that the team expects running back David Wilson, who underwent neck surgery, to be ready by the the start of the season.
Mara on D Wilson: "We expect him to be playing … all signs are he'll be ready to go."

Wilson, who is starting his third season with the Giants had neck surgery in January for his spinal stenosis condition, which is a narrowing of the spine. Wilson’s neck injury occurred at home last October in a game against the Philadelphia Eagles, ending the young running back’s season.
So far Wilson’s NFL career consists of just 504 yards on 115 carries and five touchdowns. With Wilson’s future questionable during the offseason, the Giants had to increase their depth by signing Rashad Jennings, retaining Peyton Hillis and by drafting Andre Williams out of Boston College.
It sounds like all signs point towards Wilson resuming his duties in 2014. However, he probably should halt his classic backflips though, coming off of neck surgery
