New York Giants RB Andre Brown Breaks Fibula In Sunday’s Win


Although the New York Giants dominated the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night, it was not all sunshine and rainbows. Backup/goal line running back Andre Brown ended up breaking his fibula in the win. Not a real good injury to be dealing with.

That is something that could end up hurting the team in the long run.  For whatever reason, the team has gone to Brown in the red zone more often than starting running back Ahmad Bradshaw.  This injury means that Bradshaw will once again be getting those carries.  That might be great for his fantasy owners, but not so great for the Giants and their fans.

I am not a doctor, but I have to imagine that this injury is going to end the year for Brown.  A broken leg is something that takes about two months to heal and the only shot he would probably have of returning is very late in the playoffs.  He  had a very impressive 2012 until this injury and hopefully he can come back and build off that in 2013.

Brown is probably one of the hardest workers in football and he has a great story.  This injury will certainly hurt, but he should be able to return to full strength for next season.  If he can continue to build on his performance this season, the Giants should have a capable stable of RBs for a long time.

Eli Manning Has Interesting Reaction To Broncos' Super Bowl Win

Eli Manning was captured on video making an interesting face when the Denver Broncos cemented their Super Bowl 50 win. The Internet firmly believes Eli is upset that Peyton now has two rings just like he does, but this is simply an overreaction. Eli was clearly nervous throughout the game, and his odd facial expressions are more indicative of a sign of relief than anything else.
