RB Andre Brown returns to practice for Giants

It looks like the New York Giants are one step closer to getting some much needed help at running back.

According to Pro Football Talk, Giants running back Andre Brown was cleared to practice today after missing every regular season game so far after breaking his leg in Giants’ last preseason game.

Brown was placed on injured reserve/designated for return, so he won’t be eligible to play until November 10, but this is still great news for a winless team that is only averaging 67.8 rushing yards a game and is the 30th-ranked offense in points scored. Once back, Brown will almost certainly help bolster a backfield that is currently relying on castoffs, such as Brandon Jacobs and Peyton Hillis.

The Giants also saw the return of defensive tackle Markus Kuhn to the practice field. Kuhn is currently on the PUP list, and the Giants will now have three weeks to decide to activate him, or if he will remain on PUP list and miss the rest of the season.

“There’s a legitimate window there that we would have to follow anyway,” head coach Tom Coughlin said of both Brown and Kuhn, via the Newark Star-Ledger. “But if it happens faster, then fine. But we’re going to move it slow so we can have a chance to get them in the best possible position when we do turn them loose.”
