East Rutherford, NJ (SportsNetwork.com) - New York Giants running back David Wilson will undergo neck surgery whose nature puts the future of his football career in doubt.

Giants GM Jerry Reese made the announcement on Thursday.

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

The first-round draft pick in 2012 out of Virginia Tech suffered the injury during a Week 5 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. After being inactive for three weeks, Wilson was placed on injured reserve Nov. 7.

He finished the campaign with 44 rushing attempts for 146 yards and a touchdown, along with two catches for eight yards.
