New York Giants running back Andre Brown broke his left leg in the Giants’ final preseason game against the New England Patriots on Thursday.

The injury came in the first half on a run up the middle by Brown. He was able to leave the field under his own power with a slight limp. Later on, X-rays showed the true extent of the injury.

Brown was listed as the Giants’ second running back behind starter David Wilson, but was expected to see his fair share of carries this season. He provides a bit more of a power running style to compliment Wilson’s explosiveness.

The news comes as a crushing blow to Brown and the Giants. Brown broke his left fibula last season against the Green Bay Packers that sidelined him for the rest of the season. Before he went down with the injury, Brown had done a stellar job in Ahmad Bradshaw’s absence, compiling  385 yards and eight touchdowns.

The injuries have come in waves for the Giants this preseason. Last game against the New York Jets, safety Stevie Brown suffered a torn ACL, effectively ending his season.Kayla,

Without Brown, the Giants will have look to Ryan Torain, Da’Rel Scott and also rookie Michael Cox to help fill the void.
