    Giants' Insider: Wilson Must Run With Chance

    http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/fo...icle-1.1210639

    Excerpt: "David Wilson understands the enormous opportunity he’s likely to get on Monday night. But Tom Coughlin pulled him aside for a brief conversation anyway, just to make sure.

    His message to the Giants’ first-round draft pick was simple: “Ratchet it up,” Coughlin said.

    “Yeah,” Wilson confirmed. “He told me to be ready and be prepared.”

    The Giants will find out how ready he is on Monday night when Wilson is expected to be the Giants’ No. 2 running back when they face the Redskins in Landover. He’ll replace the injured Andre Brown (broken leg/injured reserve) and back up the gimpy Ahmad Bradshaw, who missed practice (as usual) on Thursday due to his injured foot.

    Coughlin insisted Wilson is “ready to go.” Asked how he can be so sure, Coughlin said “He’s got to go.

    “We’ve had people that have had to step up in the past when situations like this have arisen. We’ve put a lot of responsibility on their shoulders and it’s time for him,” Coughlin said. “He’s a first-round draft choice, a talented kid. He got some plays the other night, which was a good thing. We go from there.”

    Just how much work Wilson will get depends on Bradshaw, who may see his responsibilities extended on Monday night, the coach said. There’s also a “possibility” the Giants may use a little of either Ryan Torain or Kregg Lumpkin, the two running backs they signed earlier this week. However both seem more likely to contribute on special teams." Read more...

    More likely on special teams but maybe Lumpkin could see some short yardage time
