Brown has not been removed from IR yet, but that sounds like a formality.
"All I think about is when he played a year ago. I’m looking forward to the return of that player, quite frankly," Coughlin said. "Size, speed, he can catch the ball out of the backfield, he does a good job in pass protection. You sometimes forget that the guy is 230 pounds. That’s a little bit of a different dimension."
Brown averaged 5.3 yards per carry and scored eight touchdowns in 10 games last season before breaking his leg -- the same injury that knocked him out for the first half of this season.
"We'll see how the week unfolds, but there will be a set plan," Coughlin said.
