When New York Giants running back Andre Brown suffered a broken leg in the preseason, who knew that they would miss his services this much? After starting 0-5, the Giants could use some help in many ways but especially the run game. David Wilson has fizzled out thus far and is now dealing with a neck injury. Brandon Jacobs, who signed with the Giants after Brown was injured, has been exactly what everyone expected, terrible. And backup Da’Rel Scott had been the only bright spot doing more than he had ever done in his previous two seasons. And for that, the Giants rewarded Scott by releasing him. Now that Wilson is OUT for week 6, New York re-signed Scott to, cough-cough, backup Jacobs. Excuse the abbreviation but… LOL!
The Giants are a mess and could use Andre Brown back ASAP. So I decided to check on his status because if and when he comes back healthy, he could get the lions share of work.
According to a report on NJ.com September 24th, everything is going well. Brown is ahead of schedule and out of his walking boot. The Doctor’s are making sure he takes his time because he has plenty of it. When Andre broke his leg, the Giants elected to use their one-time only IR designation for return on him. Thus allowing him to come back for week 10 at the earliest. And even if David Wilson is fully healthy, Brown should automatically return to his role of goal-line back.
Here is the latest update from Brown via his twitter account.
