AP - Sports

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -- New York Giants top running back David Wilson needs neck surgery and his future in football is uncertain.

Giants general manager Jerry Reese disclosed the news Thursday during a radio interview with WFAN in New York City.

New York's first-round draft pick in 2012, Wilson was hurt on Oct. 6 after being tackled coming out of his own end zone in a home game against Philadelphia.

Wilson will have a fusion of the vertebrae to repair the herniated disc in his neck. The procedure will be performed by Dr. Frank Cammisa at the Hospital of Special Surgery on Jan. 16.
