Report -- New York Giants' RB Andre Brown out 4-6 weeks

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Brown fractured his left leg in Thursday night's preseason game.

New York Giants' running back Andre Brown could miss 4-6 weeks with what has been called a "small fracture" in his left leg, Pro Football Talk is reporting. Brown was injured during the first half Thursday in the Giants' preseason finale, a 28-20 loss to the New England Patriots.

Despite the PFT report, nothing is yet official regarding the timetable for Brown's recovery.

Brown's injury, and the reported timeframe for his recovery, leave the Giants in a tricky situation. Do they use the IR/Designated For Return tag on Brown? Do they IR him for the season? Do they just carry him on the roster, wasting a spot, until he is ready to come back?

This could move either Da'Rel Scott or Ryan Torain up in the pecking order. If Brown is indeed able to return fairly early in the season that may prevent the Giants from bringing in a free-agent running back.
