News: Wilson (neck) looked quick during the Giants' first practice on Tuesday, the Daily News reports. Impact: The report suggests that Wilson displayed no ill-effects coming off his neck surgery, with the Giants' official site noting that he slid right into reps with the second-team offense on Tuesday. For now, pencil him in behind presumed starter Rashad Jennings, but if Wilson can stay healthy, the 2012 first-rounder has the dynamic skill-set to carve out fantasy value as a change-of-pace/backup option in a Giants' backfield that also includes rookie Andre Williams and veteran Peyton Hillis.(RotoWire, )

News: Wilson has been cleared for contact work after recovering from neck surgery. Impact: Wilson said the doctors gave him permission to return with no restrictions. "I can play regular football with no special equipment, no medication, or anything else," he said. The 2012 first-round draft pick appeared in only five games last season. He has largely been a fantasy bust so far for the Giants.(STATS, 3:16pm)

News: Wilson (neck) declared via Twitter on Monday that he's been cleared for contact, the New York Daily News reports. Impact: Wilson will join the recently signed Rashad Jennings in the Giants' backfield this season, creating a potentially explosive duo for Eli Manning and company. The 23-year-old Wilson has been working out with the team during the offseason but hasn't participated in any contact drills, as he's been recovering from a surgically-repaired neck. He'll likely be eased back into action at first, with potentially stiff competition coming from Peyton Hillis and rookie Andre Williams. Wilson was a huge disappointment for owners last season, as ball-control issues limited him to 146 yards and just one touchdown over five games before he went down with the injury. He'll continue to make ball security a top priority as he competes for touches during camp.(RotoWire, )
