Giants coach Tom Coughlin said RB Andre Brown will go on IR/ designated to return later.

Fantasy Impact: 

This updates a previous item that had Brown completely out for the year. Under this tag, if all goes well, he could come back for the Super Bowl. He has to be out eight weeks.

Doghouse rookie David Wilson will now back up Ahmad Bradshaw and suddenly becomes a decent pickup if he's still out there. Bradshaw certainly has his injury issues and was giving up carries to Brown before he broke his leg. We do expect this injury to ultimately result in more work for Bradshaw, but how long can Bradshaw hold up? In the short-term, expect Wilson to see a few more touches, but he is now Bradshaw's primary handcuff.
