EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- New York Giants second-year running back David Wilson is going to get a second-opinion on his neck injury next week.

Wilson, hurt against the Eagles on Sunday, missed the loss Thursday night against the Bears. He tells reporters Friday that he will be examined in California on Monday before deciding what to do.

Wilson said his neck feels fine but doctors noticed in an X-ray that one of his vertebra had moved closer to his spinal cord.

The Giants' first-round draft pick last year, Wilson said that his body momentarily went numb after being tackled on the final play of the first quarter against the Eagles. He took a while to get back up, but was able to get to the bench. Team doctors immediately had him leave the field to be examined, although he did try to get back on the field for the second half until the doctors stopped him.

Wilson said his strength is back to normal and he has passed all his physical tests.

"There's nothing wrong with me except the X-ray," Wilson said. "They want to be cautious about it. That's the most frustrating part is feeling like I do. Feeling healthy."

Wilson was handed the job as the Giants' starting running back in the off-season when the team released Ahmad Bradshaw. However, Wilson fell into disfavour losing two fumbles in the season opener at Dallas, including one returned for a touchdown. He scored a touchdown against the Eagles and played well before being hurt on a play that almost resulted in a safety.

"I feel like I'm fine," said Wilson, who has gained 146 yards on 44 carries, a 3.3-yard average. "I'm willing to go out there and sacrifice and play with my team, this is what I love. That's my choice."
