David Wilson has been medically cleared by doctors, he tweeted on Monday morning.
Wilson will likely join the Giants as they report to training camp on Monday.
“Cleared for everything,” Wilson posted on Instagram. “Now the story continues.
Wilson took reps at OTAs at returning kicks after Trindon Holliday and Quintin Demps (Stapleton, June 5).
Wilson had a “fusion of the vertebrae” surgery in January. He said the initial diagnosis is that he has spinal stenosis, which is the narrowing of the spinal canal.
He played in just five games in 2013, carrying for 146 yards and one touchdown.

Wilson will compete for a spot in the Giants’ new backfield as a likely third down and/or change up option.
He will not be asked to be a featured back any longer by the Blue. They signed Rashad Jennings in free agency and drafted Andre Williams this past April. Those two will see the lion’s share of the touches this season.
Wilson will be in the mix for the KR job, however, and if he can return to his 2012 form when he led the NFL in return yards, the Giants will be on to something.
