Giants RB Brown breaks left leg

New York Giants running back Andre Brown sustained a fractured left leg during the team's preseason finale against the New England Patriots on Thursday.

Brown limped off the field in the third quarter favoring his left leg, the same one he fractured in November of last season.

The 26-year-old running back carried the ball eight times for 27 yards prior to the injury.

Brown rushed for 385 yards and eight touchdowns on 73 carries last season before having his season cut short.

Brown had been serving as the main backup to David Wilson, who will now see an increased role in Brown's absence.
