For weeks, the Giants wondered if they were going to have any running backs at all.
Now that they’re getting some of the regulars well, division of labor becomes a question they haven’t had to worry about too often.
According to Jordan Raanan of the Newark Star-Ledger, journeyman Peyton Hillis is expected to be the primary option for another week, with Andre Brown and Brandon Jacobs each getting some work.
“There will be a set plan,” Giants coach Tom Coughlin said.
Hillis has provided solid work during the Giants’ two wins, but he’ll have some help. With Brown returning from a broken leg, and Jacobs practicing after missing two weeks with a hamstring injury, there are options.
“I’m pretty sure they are going to switch us in, switch us out,” Brown said.
Coughlin wanted to play wait-and-see on both the guys coming off injuries, not wanting to throw too much at them after extended layoffs.
