EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) Safety Stevie Brown is back with the New York Giants.
The Giants re-signed Brown on Monday in a move to shore up a position that has been decimated by injuries.
Since training camp opened, rookies Landon Collins (knee), Mykkele Thomas (Achilles tendon), free agent Justin Currie (broken leg), and veterans Bennett Jackson (knee), Nat Berhe (calf), Cooper Taylor (foot), and Josh Gordy (hip) have been hurt.
Collins, a second-round draft choice, and Taylor returned to practice last week and played against the Jets on Saturday night.
After playing with the Giants the past three seasons, Brown signed with Houston as a free agent. He was released on Saturday.
In other injury news, Victor Cruz (calf) hopes to practice next week and defensive end Robert Ayers Jr. is uncertain when the ankle he injured in pregame warmups Saturday will allow him to play.
