Houston Texans have a running back by committee approach

Bill O’Brien has said that Andre Brown and Arian Foster will have very distinguished rolls in his offensive scheme. Foster has been tagged as the passing back and has always been the feature back since his break out year in 2010. Foster has good hands and can catch the ball out of the backfield, as long as he is primarily a running back and gets a lot of touches as a runner...

New York Giants still alive in division race?

When a team starts 0-6 on the season, you rarely expect them to be in the playoff hunt by week 11, but here the New York Giants (3-6) are just a game and a half behind the Dallas Cowboys (5-5) and Philadelphia Eagles (5-5) for first place in the NFC East division. The NFC East has not been one of the stronger divisions in the league so far this year, and that has allowed the...

He may not get 30 carries again but Andre Brown's workload should stay high (RB touches week 10)

Andre Brown had 30(!) carries in his season debut for the Giants, as coach Tom Coughlin wisely eased him back into the lineup. With Peyton Hillis pushed into a clear reserve role and David Wilson being shut down, we’re going to see this type of work from Brown for here on out. It probably won’t be 31 touches a week mind you, but he roughly tripled Hillis’ snap count and had...

Don’t expect the Giants to bring back Brandon Jacobs

Even though it looks like Andre Brown will miss about half of the upcoming regular season, the Giants likely won’t be looking to bring back Brandon Jacobs. I am told, however, that a Brandon Jacobs reunion "seems very unlikely" at the moment. … But never say never, I guess. #NYG — Ralph Vacchiano (@RVacchianoNYDN) August 30, 2013 It was obvious over the past...

Giants lose running back Andre Brown to fractured leg

getty images 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...

Potential starter Andre Brown among running Backs to target late

So, Andre Brown went and fumbled in his first preseason game, which is a shame because he isn’t as talented as David Wilson, but don’t fret, he is going to get the chances to punch home TDs and his fair share of carries. He is a back who should be targeted, even if he doesn't start he'll have value as he plays with a powerful offense and will be seeing the majority of...
