MRI Stands Between Wilson And Return

After missing majority of last season, RB David Wilson says that he is waiting on an MRI to determine his return back on the football field.

Wilson, 22, injured his neck against Philadelphia back on October 6th that essentially placed him on IR. He underwent surgery ten days later on a herniated disk. 

During the game against Philadelphia, Wilson said that he never pain after the injury occurred. 

“I never had pain from the injury, even after it happened, the day after it happened, the moment after it happened,” Wilson said in a press release. “I’m in the locker room telling the coaches, ‘Let me go back out there, I don’t feel anything.’ I snuck out on the field and was removed."

Wilson said he expects to be back on the field but the only thing that's keeping the optimism down is an MRI and confirmation from the doctor. 

“I passed every test except a picture and that’s the only reason I’m not on the field,” Wilson said. “Because of pictures. Right now we just need to get the photograph that we need.”

If Wilson does in fact return back on the field, he would be apart of an improved backfield with newly acquired RB, Rashad Jennings. Last season with Oakland, Jennings racked up 738 yards and six touchdowns. 

“Both of us can be an every down back, but the way the game is today, it’s not going to be one guy,” Wilson said regarding Rashad Jennings. “There are very few teams that have one running back that’s always in there.”

may be one of the few people you meet who is always glad to talk taxes. He has spent 17 years immersed in government communications – almost entirely in the tax field. He currently serves as the Director of Public Relations at the New York State Tax Department. In each of Geoff’s positions, he has created opportunities to transform the communications environment for the benefit of the organization. Under his leadership, Tax Department public relations have shifted from a reactive focus to proactive outreach. Most recently, Geoff led the STAR Registration media campaign to assist 2 million homeowners with property tax relief while eliminating fraud. As a result of extensive press outreach, more than 300 articles were printed in daily papers alone, and broadcast media repeatedly covered the story in each corner of the state. Less than 5 months after launch, 2.3 million homeowners had registered for their property tax exemptions. Geoff (@gloak23) lives in Kinderhook with his journalist wife, Kristi Berner (@kristiberner), and 4-year-old daughter, Gemma, who is now proud to be able to write her name.
