NFL Injury Report:
While the New York Giants were able to come up with a big
victory over the Green Bay Packers last night, they lost two players to
injuries during the game; running back Andre Brown and safety Kenny Phillips.
Brown’s injury was significant as he suffered a broken fibula late in the game,
reports Hank Gola of the New York Daily News.
The only negative part of the Giants’ big night was losing
running back Andre Brown to a broken fibula in the fourth quarter.
Brown sustained the injury in the fourth quarter during his
longest gain of the night, a 16-yard run. While Brown isn’t the team’s starting
running back, he has been solid as a backup and did step up as an injury
replacement earlier this season.
The Giants confirmed that Brown will miss the rest of the season due to the injury, and Gola notes that it will open up an opportunity for rookie running back
Phillips was able to start Sunday night after missing six
games due to a knee injury. Unfortunately, the return may be short-lived, as
Phillips suffered another knee injury late in the game. He exited in the fourth
quarter, and the Giants didn’t offer an update on his condition after the game.
Phillips wasn’t overly concerned, as he said he could have continued playing.

The New York Giants backfield suffered a major blow on Sunday night after losing RB Andre Brown with a broken left fibula. Brown has played a key role for the Giants this season and his return to the field this season is in serious doubt.

After tonight’s blow out win over the Packers, New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin announced that running back Andre Brown suffered a broke fibula that will end his 2012 season.
Brown really came on this season and showed everyone that he can be a legitimate NFL running back.
With the Giants only having two healthy running backs on their roster (Ahmad Bradshaw, David Wilson...
Finally going to get my shot Juan…
I have been wanting the Giants to get their first round pick involved in the game plan and now they may have to. Andre Brown has suffered a broken leg and will miss the rest of the season. This will obviously open the door for Wilson to get more involved.
Wilson has some serious juice and can make huge plays anytime he touches the ball. ...
Accorrding to Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPNNewYork.com, the Giants are expected to sign free agent running back Kregg Lumpkin to fill the void left by Andre Brown.

New York Giants QB Eli Manning certainly appeared well rested.
His arm did need a nice rest; he didn't think so at first, but if last night's rout of the Green Bay Packers is any indication, it was just what he needed.
Manning was 16-of-30 passing for 249 yards and three touchdowns. "I never thought my arm was tired, never felt like it," Manning said, via ESPN...
The Giants signed running backs Ryan Torain and Kregg Lumpkin Tuesday after placing Andre Brown on injured reserve with a fractured fibula Monday.Fantasy Spin:Torain and Lumpkin will give the Giants depth at running back but don't figure to be fantasy options. We expect New York to finally increase rookie David Wilson's role behind Ahmad Bradshaw.
Jenny Vrentas of the Star-Ledger is reporting that the Giants have signed free agent Kregg Lumpkin to replace Andre Brown in the backfield. Lumpkin played for Tampa Bay in 2011 and averaged 3.4 ypc on 31 attempts and also caught 41 balls for 291 yards.Fantasy Spin:Ahmad Bradshaw should get a bigger piece of the pie from here on out with David Willson getting most of the rest. Lumpkin...
