EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — After a tough loss in Dallas in which the New York Giants turned the ball over six times, Tom Coughlin said he isn’t ready to give up on running back David Wilson.
Wilson is certainly in Coughlin’s doghouse once again after fumbling twice and having one returned for a touchdown in the Giants’, 36-31 season-opening loss to the Cowboys on Sunday night.
The 2012 first-round pick was benched in the second half, and much of Coughlin’s conference call Monday centered on the state of the running game, whether Wilson would start this weekend against Denver in the third Manning Bowl, or if the coach was thinking of signing former Giant Brandon Jacobs.
A seemingly relaxed Coughlin refused to discuss his starting lineup, noting the team needs Wilson. Free agents will be worked out Tuesday, as usual.
