Giants lose Andre Brown to broken leg

Getty Images

In the fourth game of the preseason, every team hopes most of all to avoid any significant injuries. The New York Giants were not that lucky.

Giants running back Andre Brown suffered a broken leg in the second quarter of the Giants’ preseason finale against the Patriots, the team has announced.

Brown suffered the injury when he was tackled late in the second quarter. Giants coach Tom Coughlin will surely face plenty of questions about why Brown was still in the game at that point.

The Giants expected Brown to play an important role in their offense this year, splitting time with David Wilson at running back. Losing Brown at the end of the preseason is a significant blow.

    And the G Men collapse begins…Wish we could snatch 26 million out of your cap space. Jerks

    So everyone will be calling for him to be fired correct? ?
    Oh wait that only applies if you’re the coach of the other team in that stadium.

    Wow this is bad. I’ve always quietly been a fan of the Giants, had them pegged as true contenders but this one will hurt. Eli’s job just got harder

    If you weren’t asking why he was still in there WHILE he was still in there then you don’t have a lot of room to criticize Coughlin.

  5. steelerconsensus says: Aug 29, 2013 9:57 PM

    7-9 at best

  6. kev86 says: Aug 29, 2013 10:10 PM

    Wilson is going to have a great year.

  7. fafaflunky says: Aug 29, 2013 10:14 PM


    it was 36 million..

    cowboys going to beat the giants down big………nfc east is ours.

  9. oldcat157 says: Aug 29, 2013 10:18 PM

    Nice. David Wilson stock just got a boast in fantasy land.

  10. NotoriousKDV says: Aug 29, 2013 10:25 PM

    Looks like Wilson’s fantasy value just skyrocketed.

  11. cappa662 says: Aug 29, 2013 10:26 PM

    Not sure what the hell Coughlin was thinking.

  12. firstand4ever says: Aug 29, 2013 10:56 PM

    Coughlin has 2 superbowl rings so he always gets a free pass.

    The funny thing is that the New York Media called for Tom Coughlin’s firing twice during his current tenure, both times during the eventual Giant superbowl seasons. The point being when they criticize someone and start up a lynch mob, They are usually wrong. The times when they should criticize, they are nowhere to be found.

    Not for nothing I was shocked to see manning playing at all. Cough lion trying to get his offense on track?

  14. albanyjints says: Aug 29, 2013 11:01 PM

    You cheated and got caught. Man up!

  15. bigblu73 says: Aug 29, 2013 11:04 PM

    We just can’t catch a break!!! (No Pun Intended)

  16. ken2016 says: Aug 29, 2013 11:11 PM

    Jacobs it time son! Is it me or does this year has more injuries to players than seasons past? I guess every player wants to make a big play every snap!

  17. aaroncurryisbust says: Aug 29, 2013 11:13 PM

    And nothing of value was lost.

  18. 49ersallday says: Aug 29, 2013 11:15 PM

    and im the idiot that just traded wilson thinking he wasnt gonna be reliable

  19. bsizemore68 says: Aug 29, 2013 11:18 PM

    It seems that every year a team or two will do this. My team QB said he didn’t want defense starter playing because they are the strength of the team, however the coaches always think the starter that the play won’t get hurt. Bill

  20. romoscollarbone says: Aug 29, 2013 11:29 PM

    The Giants, true contenders?!?!?? Hahaha, they are a well run org but this will not be their year. Zero in the LB corp and secondary. DL will be a positive but JPP is coming off an injury and Tuck is a year older. Cruz got paid and has been out, Oline lost two starters in the preseason. Nicks historically can’t stay healthy. Now they’re also lacking RB depth. Also not a lot at TE.

  21. squared80 says: Aug 29, 2013 11:32 PM

    Looks like I’ll be drafting Wilson in round 2 now, not round 3.

  22. gerryf19 says: Aug 29, 2013 11:48 PM

    Most people who were watching were surely asking why he was still there.

  23. sarcasm says: Aug 30, 2013 12:22 AM

    Paging Mr. Brandon Jacobs

  24. papichulo55 says: Aug 30, 2013 12:26 AM

    Sorry to see Brown break the same leg again. Coughlin will meet with Jerry Reese to find somebody else. The Giants GM is one of the best in the game.

  25. whodey420 says: Aug 30, 2013 12:58 AM

    Man, quite a blow for the Giants. Hate to see anyone get hurt in the final pre season game! Let alone someone that could be a difference maker. Maybe the Colts will cut Ahmad Bradshaw? Nah, probably not!

  26. cmdrsmooth says: Aug 30, 2013 1:00 AM

    “So everyone will be calling for him to be fired correct? ?
    Oh wait that only applies if you’re the coach of the other team in that stadium.” Perfect.

  27. coltzfan166 says: Aug 30, 2013 1:58 AM

    And Ahmad Bradshaw is laughing as he celebrates with Andrew Luck

  28. nflofficeadmin says: Aug 30, 2013 4:30 AM

    This guy cannot catch a break injury-wise. Blown out his knees a couple of times and now a broken leg. Damn.

  29. pgcubano says: Aug 30, 2013 5:46 AM

    skins are definitely gna smoke these bums this year

  30. blueballz77 says: Aug 30, 2013 6:20 AM

    Your hope is that the Giants collapse begins,Still crying about getting caught cheating too lol

  31. scottieplongballs says: Aug 30, 2013 6:49 AM

    This helps me HUGE as I have David Wilson in both my leagues.

  32. cobraiv says: Aug 30, 2013 6:52 AM

    rg3andthensome, RG3 wont be back for another 4 games so don’t worry about my NY Giants. The NFC Eeat is ours this year.

  33. floratiotime says: Aug 30, 2013 7:09 AM

    Leave to an R-words fan to be pumping his fist after an injury. It figures. But remember … what goes around comes around.

  34. mn1288 says: Aug 30, 2013 7:56 AM

    Illi – no one was watching that dog show so that’d be a difficult thing to do.

  35. themage78 says: Aug 30, 2013 8:22 AM

    It was only the second quarter and he hasn’t gotten a lot of work this preseason. Anything like this can happen.

  36. themonkeyman says: Aug 30, 2013 8:28 AM

    trolls, trolls, trolls – the worst anymore are the Washington Racists fans. And people wonder why other teams fans hate on RGIII. As I have said before, it’s not RGIII, it’s his FANS that make people feel as they do. Hey Redskin fans act like you’ve been there before & show some class.

    Lastly genius, it was the league that took your cap space for inappropriate behavior. Had your scummy owner & team management done things right, you wouldn’t have been penalized. The “jerks” are your own team’s management basement boy.

  37. historyisyourfriend says: Aug 30, 2013 8:32 AM

    Hope he heals up quickly, but let’s be real:

    Andre was going to be the 3rd down back and maybe take some goal line/short yard carries at best. The real running back on that team (Wilson) is going to be a beast this year. Wilson has to learn pass protection to be the complete package, but his running ability is borderline elite right now in his 2nd year.

    So it is a loss for the Giants, but not as big as some are making it out to be.

    C’mon man, that tune was old two years ago. If you can’t think of anything original to say, please stay away from the keyboard. Thank you.

  39. nesportsfan0428 says: Aug 30, 2013 8:49 AM

    This poor guy. Bounces around the leage for a few years, breaks out with the Giants, and breaks his leg for he second year in a row.

  40. sandblastermoron says: Aug 30, 2013 9:09 AM

    and TURD BAY will never beat the Giants when it counts!!!!

  41. lagg1 says: Aug 30, 2013 9:36 AM

    What in God’s holy name were the Giants doing playing Brown in the first place in preseason game number 4? I know that they wanted to tune up the offense but this is ridiculous. Jerry Reese better find someone post haste with the same make up. Every year it is always a front line player getting hurt with the Giants. Stevie Brown now Andre Brown to go along with guys like Terrell Thomas and Rolle from the past. Yuck-this sucks!

  42. pjflynn84 says: Aug 30, 2013 10:16 AM

    I didn’t realize you can break someone’s leg with a camera.
