Linebacker Gerris Wilkinson, the leading special teams tackler, underwent surgery today to repair a right wrist dislocation suffered during the third quarter.
Wilkinson had one tackle yesterday and 12 on the year. And that's where the oft-injured player may end it, as the recovery time for such surgery runs from six to eight weeks. That means he'd likely see action only for the final two games, or just the playoffs. But chances are the Giants are going to need the roster spot before then, so a trip to the IR would not be out of the question.
