A big win for Big Blue has been marred by a broken leg.
“Takes an awful lot off of the win,” coach Tom Coughlin said after the game, via Hank Gola of the New York Daily News.
The injury occurred during a 16-yard run from Brown, his longest of the night.
Brown’s status isn’t clear. Though it’s being regarded by some as a season-ending injury, Brown declared on Twitter, “People the season not over yet!!!!”
The absence of Brown opens the door for first-round rookie David Wilson to find his way onto the field and out of Coughlin’s doghouse. “When I was a rookie I told David that [Derrick Ward] broke his fibula and I had to step in and be a big part of our offense,” Bradshaw said. “That’s what I expect from David. I told David just to get ready for the weeks to come. I think he can be a big part of our offense once we get him going.”
Brown has 385 yards rushing this season. He churned up 113 in place of Bradshaw during a Week Three thrashing of the Panthers.
