NYG: rookie RB Andre Brown lost for the season.

NFL Network - [Full Article]

Giants rookie RB Andre Brown has torn the Achilles' tendon in his left leg and will be lost for the season.

The 4th-round draft pick from North Carolina State was running a pass route out of the backfield late in Friday night's practice at the University at Albany when the tendon ruptured as he reached for a pass from David Carr.

Brown immediately fell to the ground and grabbed his leg. As he was treated by trainers, he covered his face with his jersey while in obvious pain.

Giants coach Tom Coughlin said Brown will have surgery next week.
