We are definitely going to see a timeshare here in NY. Bradshaw has shown year after year that he gets these nagging injuries. I wouldn't be surprised if we see Brown take even more of a roll later down the road.
NY Giants' Andre Brown will likely play behind Ahmad Bradshaw, who returns from injury this week Big Blue reserve filled in admirably and won't be relegated to the bench after impressive performances. Tom Coughlin insists there is a place for both running backs. By Ebenezer Samuel / NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Monday, September 24, 2012, 10:19 PM
Andre Brown may have revived the Giants’ rushing attack over the last two weeks, but Ahmad Bradshaw is now ready to take his job back.
Bradshaw was cleared by doctors on Monday to return to practice this week, according to a source familiar with his situation. Bradshaw missed the Giants’ win in Carolina on Thursday with a sprained neck that he suffered early in the Giants’ win over the Buccaneers on Sept. 16.
Since then, Brown has more than adequately filled in for Bradshaw, rushing for 184 yards on 33 carries and an impressive 5.6 yards per carry with three touchdowns. Bradshaw is averaging 4.3 yards per carry (22 carries, 94 yards), though that average was boosted by a 33-yard, garbage-time run on opening night.
Bradshaw is expected to reclaim his starting job if he’s healthy, though it’s hard to imagine Brown being relegated to the bench. Tom Coughlin has yet to address the situation, but he did say, “There’s a place for everybody.”
Andre Brown played just nine snaps in the Giants' Week 4 loss to the Eagles. The Giants might have their eye on a timeshare, but it didn't happen Sunday night. Forced to go pass-heavy, they used Ahmad Bradshaw on 58 snaps as the better protector. Expect more runs and more chances for Brown against Cleveland in Week 5.

Im not sure Brown even got a carry it was Wilson that came in. Wilson might be gaining trust at handling the ball with his ST duties. Brown is said to have trouble pass blocking. Brown might be dropped pretty quickly in a lot of leagues.

It's worth noting that Brown suffered a head injury today on a kickoff return...that's hwy he didn't get any touches. That said, I think he's borderline rosterable in 12-team leagues, if Bradshaw were to get hurt he might be a flex player (in 12-team leagues) and if Bradshaw and Wilson got hurt he'd probably be a solid starter for a fantasy team. He's the kind of guy that I'll keep around if I have nothing better to do with a roster spot, but if there's someone I want to pick up, I'd have no issue dropping Brown.
Ahmad Bradshaw did not practice Wednesday due to a foot issue. Uh-oh. Bradshaw has a long history of foot issues, including offseason ankle surgeries after the 2010 and 2011 seasons and a broken bone in his right foot that cost him four games last year. It's fair to classify the situation as chronic and carrying the ball 57 times over the last two weeks appears to have aggravated the ailment. Coach Tom Coughlin said it's "the same type of thing" popping up again. Even though Bradshaw is expected to return to practice Thursday, we'd be selling here. Electric rookie David Wilson is worth a stash in most formats. Related: David Wilson Source: Ralph Vacchiano on Twitter Oct 17 - 10:59 AM
Giants' Brown out for season with broken leg By PAUL SCHWARTZ Last Updated: 10:55 AM, November 26, 2012 Posted: 2:05 AM, November 26, 2012 Giants Blog
Tucked into last night’s 38-10 rout of the Packers was a serious injury. Running back Andre Brown came out of the game with a broken fibula, ending his season. Brown was having another solid game — a team-high 64 yards, plus his eighth rushing touchdown of the season.
“It takes a lot off of the win, to be honest with you,’’ Tom Coughlin said.
David Wilson, the rookie first-round pick, now moves in as the No. 2 back behind Ahmad Bradshaw. Back in 2007, a broken leg suffered by Derrick Ward allowed Bradshaw to move up the depth chart behind starter Brandon Jacobs.
“Ahmad told me the same thing happened with him,’’ Wilson said. “I’m definitely prepared, definitely take a good approach.’’
With only three running backs on the roster, the Giants likely will look to sign another. They worked out veteran Joseph Addai last week.
