Jacobs happy to be back with Giants, Wilson ready to run and hold onto the football

Tom Coughlin is sick of answering questions about halfback David Wilson and his fumbles.

After being peppered Wednesday by more than a half-dozen questions about Wilson, his hands, whether he was starting this weekend against Denver and what precautions the team had taken to stop the miscues, the 67-year-old coach had had enough.

Coughlin said he couldn't say any more about Wilson, who lost two fumbles in the 36-31 season-opening loss to Dallas, including one that was returned for a touchdown. The second-year running back was going to be watched in practice to make sure the ball was being held right, and if he couldn't do that, well ...

Coughlin didn't say it, but Wilson probably would be replaced by either Da'Rel Scott or the recently signed Brandon Jacobs, who returns for a second stint and could help a shaky backfield situation.
