EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP)

First-round draft pick David Wilson had a lofty set of goals for his rookie season as a running back with the New York Giants.

Getting benched and ending up in coach Tom Coughlin's doghouse after just two carries wasn't on the list.

Wilson put himself in the ''Chateau Bow-Wow'' in the season opener last week when he fumbled at the Dallas 27 in the first quarter of a scoreless game. The Cowboys eventually won, 24-17.

The Virginia Tech product didn't get another carry after that. He only returned kickoffs the rest of the way.

While coaches have been reminding him to carry the ball high and tight since the fumble, no one has been harder on Wilson than himself.
