New York Giants running back David Wilson will undergo neck surgery next week.
Wilson will have a fusion of his verebrae to repair a herniated disk in his neck.
Giants general manager Jerry Reese told WFAN that the team isn't counting on Wilson for next season.
"I don't think so," Reese said. "No. 1 we just want David to get healthy. If he gets healthy, that's a bonus. But I don't think we can go into next season saying 'David will be ready to go. He'll be our No. 1 back.' Necks can be tricky. You have to be careful with those things."
Wilson sustained a herniated disk on Oct. 6.
He was also diagnosed with spinal stenosis.
