Andre Brown breaks leg, out for year for New York Giants

Eli Manning and the New York Giants dominated against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night, but it wasn't all good news for Big Blue.

Running back Andre Brown suffered a broken fibula in the Giants' 38-10 victory and will not play again this season, Giants coach Tom Coughlin said.

Brown suffered the injury in the fourth quarter after rushing for 64 yards on 13 carries.

"He's been running the ball hard the last week. It's going to be a tough loss," Giants quarterback Eli Manning said after the game.

The second-year back from North Carolina State had emerged as the team's No. 2 back behind Ahmad Bradshaw, rushing for 385 yards and eight touchdowns on the season. The Giants will now have to depend more on rookie first-round pick David Wilson.

Brown's wasn't the only significant injury for the Giants.

Safety Kenny Phillips, playing in his first game in nearly two months Sunday after missing six games with a right knee injury, suffered an injury to the same knee during the third quarter.
