The New York Giants plan to go with David Wilson as their starting running back.
He'll work in tandem with Andre Brown, but Wilson, a speedy former first-round draft pick from Virginia Tech, is the primary featured runner.
“We expect [Wilson] to be our starter, and be in the backfield with Andre Brown, who had a terrific season going last year until he got hurt,” Giants general manager Jerry Reese told ESPN Radio. “[Brown's] had the injury bug a little bit since he’s been in the league. But if he can stay healthy, and David Wilson comes on like we expect him too, we think we can have a pretty dynamic backfield.”
Wilson has rushed for 50 yards on 13 carries, nine yards less than Brown on a dozen crries.
Meanwhile, Reese hasn't given up hope on wide receiver Victor Cruz being ready for the Dallas Cowboys in the first game despite a heel injury.
"We’re hopeful of that," Reese said. "He’s day to day, and he’s got a strong will, and he says he’ll be ready, and I believe him."
