Andre Brown suffered a fractured left leg in the Giants preseason finale on Thursday night.

Brown fractured the same leg last season and losing him puts the Giants in a jam as the regular season approaches. Brown was set to be the primary backup to David Wilson.

The injury to Brown will make Wilson an every down back. Brown will miss at-least a significant part of the season. The Giants could put him on injured reserve/designated for return player. But at the very least he’s going to miss a huge chunk of the season.

In ten games last year Brown carried the ball 73 times for 385 yards and eight touchdowns.
