Neck surgery not recommended for Giants RB David Wilson

Giants running back David Wilson @4stillRunning received the second opinion on his neck injury Monday, and he got some great news. According to FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo, Dr. Robert Watkins did not recommend surgery during today's appointment. Garafolo adds that Wilson is still expected to miss a couple of weeks, but his season "isn't over just yet."

Fantasy Analysis:

This is a 180 from Friday's news that Wilson had spinal stenosis. Fantasy owners still need to add Brandon Jacobs @gatorboyrb as he will be the team's main runner for a little bit. But you should hang on to Wilson in deep and semi-deep leagues if you can afford it. With his current timetable, he may be back after the Giants' Week 9 bye.

Looks like good news for Wilson and the Giants running game. But Im confused... if Wilson really does feel great, as he claimed over the weekend, why is he still going to miss a few games?? Something doesnt smell right...

I've got Wilson already and Andre Brown in my IR spot. Hang onto both or cut bait with Wilson and snatch someone like Percy Harvin to bolster other spots because Brown's likely to get the job when back?

Wilson is going to miss games because he still hasn't yet been cleared to play. They are still trying to figure out the severity of the injury. There are some things we still don't know about this situation.
