The procedure removed a bone chip from Wilson's palm. Wilson told the New York Daily News that the surgery happened "awhile ago."
"It happened awhile ago," Wilson said at a Boost Mobile "Shrink Hunger" event in Harlem. "I didn't want to do it, like, before the season. But it was already chipped. So (they) just take it out so it won't be floating around."
Despite the injury, Wilson is expected to be New York's main running back next season. Tom Coughlin will likely use a committee featuring Wilson, Andre Brown and Da'Rel Scott, but Wilson should end up earning the starting running back job.
The Giants selected Wilson in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft out of Virginia Tech. Wilson appeared in all 16 games for the Giants in his rookie season, and amassed 358 rushing yards on 71 carries, and rushed for four touchdowns. Wilson served as New York's kick returner as well, returning 57 kickoffs for 1,533 yards -- including a touchdown.
