Andre Brown Carted Off


Recommended Posts

Uh oh. Rookie RB Andre Brown just got hurt. Went up for a pass, came down wrong. Trainers working on lower left leg. Doesn't look good.



Running backs gathering around. Coughlin comes over, too. Carted off the field. Not good at all.

Hasent this kid impressed the coaches all camp long with his pass catching ability?


Hope he's alright and the cart was just a precautionary thing.


EDIT: Fuck just read Pdoubs post, what the fuck is up with our strength staff or whatever? It seems like every camp we get more banged up then during the season.

From Rotoworld.com:


Rookie RB Andre Brown was carted off the Giants practice field Friday evening with what appeared to be a serious left leg injury.


It's not known if it's a knee or ankle injury. Brown came down awkwardly and rolled over several times in pain. Trainers and players surrounded Brown, and Brandon Jacobs was seen shaking his head. Stay tuned for details.

NY Giants rookie running back Andre Brown ruptures Achilles' tendon, will undergo surgery

ALBANY, N.Y. -- Giants running back Andre Brown's rookie season is already over.


The fourth-round pick, who was having an impressive training camp, suffered a ruptured left Achilles' tendon in practice on Friday evening. He will undergo surgery next week for what is a season-ending injury, according to the team's public-relations staff.


Brown went up for a pass from David Carr with linebacker Gerris Wilkinson in coverage. He came down and immediately rolled over several times while writhing in pain. While trainers attended to Brown, starting running back Brandon Jacobs stood nearby with fullback Madison Hedgecock. Jacobs was shaking his head in frustration -- a clear sign the severity of Brown's injury was immediately apparent.


The Giants believe the injury occurred as he planted to make his jump.


"I don't know how it happened," coach Tom Coughlin said through a team spokesman. "Andre was running his route side by side with the linebacker."


As Brown was carted off, he pulled his jersey over his face. He must have known it will be a while before he puts it on again.


Brown was fourth on the depth chart at running back behind Jacobs, Ahmad Bradshaw and Danny Ware. They'll probably bring in another body at the position to replace Brown, though they could move Dwayne Wright, a running back who's been working at fullback, back to his natural position.
