Andre Brown suffers broken leg in final preseason game

One of the biggest goals for teams in the preseason is for their players to stay healthy and unfortunately for the Giants, they lost one of their key players to a significant injury last night.

For a second year in a row, Giants running back Andre Brown has suffered a broken leg.

Brown describes this year's fracture as "a little crack" and expects to avoid surgery and play at some point during the regular season, according to Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN New York.

"Spirits are high, I'm positive," Brown said (via ESPN New York). "And I'm looking forward to coming back this season. It's not as serious as it was last year."

"It is not that bad of a break. Just a little tiny, a little crack in it. We still got to do more tests on it. Last time when I broke it we knew immediately what the problem was."

While the Giants may end up placing Brown on IR with the designation to return, Brown hopes to stay active thinking that he won't miss much time.

"Nah, I would love to stay active," he said. "That is how I feel. I feel I can come back from this within a couple of weeks, and that's how small it is. We are definitely looking at it positively."

For Brown, who was entering a contract year, this is a tough break (literally) and I hope that he is able to come back at some point in the season and be productive.

That said, it gives David Wilson a significant boost (and I will move him up in my fantasy rankings) as Brown figured to be heavily involved as part of a 1-2 punch.
