David Wright, his doctor and Mets team doctors are discussing possible neck surgery for the herniated disk in his neck.
There is still a good chance that Wright opts for rehab over surgery, but the latter remains an option.
The team should know in the next few days if Wright will opt for surgery, Sandy Alderson said.
According to Alderson, the possible surgery requires three-to-five months of recovery and would end Wright's season.
The neck injury is reportedly not related to Wright's spinal stenosis condition, which he continues to manage game to game, and which kept him out several months last season.
"Any time I miss a game with something other than my back, it's pretty concerning," Wright said in early June. "My back gives me enough trouble, so now that it is something different, it's frustrating. ... If I'm physically able to go out there and help the team, I try to do that. But if I can't help the team, then I can't go out there and play."
Wright, 33, was hitting .226 with seven home runs and 14 RBIs in 37 games this season.
