Giants RB David Wilson Says He's Prepared For Bigger Role
Whether Andre Brown misses the remainder of the season because of a broken fibula or not, one thing is certain: David Wilson will have the opportunity he's been waiting for to step in and shoulder the load alongside Ahmad Bradshaw for at least the next few weeks.
After last night's win over the Packers, Wilson said he's ready.
"I've been preparing all the season and shadowing the guys in front of me so I feel like I'm prepared," said Wilson, who had been unaware of the extent of Brown's injury until he was asked questions about it.
It hasn't been the season Wilson expected back in training camp when he set a lofty list of goals for his rookie campaign. A fumble on his second career carry in the opener against the Cowboys landed him in Tom Coughlin's doghouse and the coaching staff had insisted the first-round pick still needs to improve in other facets of the position -- such as pass protection -- before he could play more.
