The New York Giants released a statement Monday updating the status of RB David Wilson. Wilson has been sidelined since suffering a herniated disc on Oct. 6.

Wilson underwent an MRI and was re-evaluated by team physicians. The team announced that while there had been “significant improvement,” he still hasn’t been cleared to resume football activities. He will undergo another evaluation several weeks from now.

“The determination was made that while there has been significant improvement with the herniation, Wilson is still not clear to resume football activities,” the team said in a statement. “Wilson will undergo another evaluation in several weeks.”

As NFL.com’s Dan Hanzus points out, the decision not to place Wilson on injured reserve indicates that they feel Wilson will be able to return at some point this season. This is obviously not good news for the Giants. Their rushing attack has been paltry all season, even when Wilson was on the field. They are set to get Andre Brown (leg) back in the coming weeks which should give a much needed boost to their run game.
