EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- New York Giants running back David Wilson has been cleared for contact work after recovering from neck surgery. Although he attended offseason workouts with the Giants, Wilson was held back from many activities by the team's medical staff. On Monday, he said, "I got cleared this morning ... that was the best news I'd gotten in a while." New York's first training camp practice is Tuesday, and the Giants play on Aug. 3 in the Hall of Fame game against Buffalo. 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." The 2012 first-round draft pick appeared in only five games last season.
