Giants injury update: David Wilson, Chris Snee

New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin said the team won't rush injured running back David Wilson back to action, Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reported.

Wilson injured his neck last season in week 5 against the Eagles and was eventually shut down by the Giants' medical staff in November.

He has decided to keep playing, however, and if the diagnosis of spinal stenosis is correct, he would face an increased chance of neck injuries.

That's likely the reason Coughlin expressed caution when asked about Wilson.

“I’m counting on him, but I am not going to put him in any circumstance until it’s an absolute that he’s 100 percent. I’m not going to mess with that one,” Coughlin said.

In other Giants news, Coughlin stressed the importance of getting lineman Chris Snee back and healthy.

Snee was placed on IR in October last year after injuring his hip. It was the same hip he had surgery on before the 2013 season.

Coughlin stressed the importance of Snee to the Giants offense.

"We start out with Chris the last couple years and were not able to finish and all of a sudden he’s gone and that aspect of his leadership is removed. So now you have not only the loss of him as a player, but the loss of him in terms of his leadership role in the classroom where he helps all these young guys," Coughlin said.
