Help: Duck neck injured

My brother brought me a grown duck that can't hold his head up. I've had him isolated for a couple of days feeding him and he seems no better.  Can anyone tell me what might be wrong.  They said he has been this way for a couple of weeks on the river.

    can you get it to a vet?
    ducks necks have multiple small bones so it may have a fracture and will be in pain
     another possibility is wry neck which is sometimes caused by a vitamin deficiency - you can give it cage bird vitamins or human baby vitamins
    what is it eating - it needs proper food with lots of greens and protein if its to have any chance of recovery
