This is the second straight year that New York Giants running back Andre Brown has broken his left leg.
This injury took place in last night’s preseason game versus the New England Patriots. According to what YouWager experts have learned, Brown’s new injury is actually “a little crack in” his leg and that he can return this NFL season. The 26 year-old also stated he will not need surgery.
The running back limped off to the locker room just before the end of the first half of the 28-20 defeat versus New England in their preseason finale. X-rays revealed the fracture.
New York has had to endure an injury plagued season, with starters such as Victor Cruz (heel), David Baas (left MCL), David Diehl (thumb) and Stevie Brown (knee) suffering injuries in games. Moreover, Stevie Brown will not be returning this season with a torn ACL, Baas could miss the opener and Diehl will be out for more than a month. However, the 26 year-old Cruz is likely to return to practice next week.
Furthermore, the Giants lost tight end Adrien Robinson to a left foot injury and safety Tyler Sash to a concussion versus the Pats. Oddsmakers learned Robinson’s foot is not broken, but he was in a walking boot and on crutches after the game.
