Andre Brown thinks he can play again this season

New York Giants running back Andre Brown tried to strike an optimistic tone after suffering what coach Tom Coughlin called a "small fracture" in his left leg during the team's 28-20 preseason loss to the New England Patriots on Thursday night.

Brown had his season end after 10 games last season when he broke the same leg. That ended the best season of Brown's career, a year that saw him carry 73 times for 385 yards (5.3 yards per carry) with 8 touchdowns.

Whether or not he gets the opportunity to come back this season is an interesting question.

The Giants already have offensive lineman David Baas and David Diehl recovering from injuries that will carry into the regular season. Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul and fullback Henry Hynoski are not certain to be ready for the season opener vs. the Dallas Cowboys. Adrien Robinson sustained a foot injury Thursday and Tyler Sash came out of the game with a concussion.

The Giants have until 6 p.m. ET on Saturday to set their 53-man roster. The IR with the chance to return designation cannot be used until Sept. 3.
