Andre Brown, the Giants’ backup running back, was quoted as saying that because the leg fracture he sustained in Thursday night’s exhibition game is so small, he expects to be back on the field in two weeks. Don’t count on it.
Backup running back Andre Brown has broken his left leg for the second straight year, but he’s staying positive. “It’s not that bad of a break,” he said. “It’s just a tiny little crack in there.”
