Andre Brown, running back of the New York Giants, is able to come back on the field next week, considering the team is on a week 9 bye. It has been reported that the team’s RB coach, Jerald Ingram thinks Brown will be ready to play in his first game back after his leg injury.
According to ESPN,
“I’m very confident,” Ingram said Tuesday. “I think he’s practiced well in the last few weeks. He’s eager to get out there. He’s a competitor and he’s gone through an awful lot and he has a lot of pain in his heart and I think he’ll be ready to go.”
Brown was placed on the injured reserve – designated to return list following a broken left leg in the Giants’ last preseason game. However, Brown has been back at practice for just about two weeks now, and all signs point to him returning week 10 when the G-Men take on the Raiders.
“Andre is definitely going to fit in,” Ingram said. “We had plans for him before he got hurt. He’s very athletic. He catches the ball well out of the backfield and he runs the ball well and he’s got good speed. He’s that multipurpose back that can do a lot of things in first, second down and third down.”
Brown’s injury has been a tough one for the Giants, as they were going to use him along with David Wilson as a dual threat in the backfield. Things only got worse for the Giants though, as they lost David Wilson to an injury soon thereafter. The Giants have gone through four other running backs while waiting for Brown and Wilson to be healthy again (Brandon Jacobs, Peyton Hillis, Michael Cox, and Da’Rel Scott).
