Giants' RB Andre Brown heads to locker room with head injury

Jeremy Brevard-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

New York Giants running back Andre Brown has left Sunday's game with a head injury, suffered during a kickoff return.

Andre Brown has left the field in New York, heading to the locker room with an apparent head injury.

Entering Sunday's game with 198 yards rushing and three touchdowns, Brown has been a pleasant surprise for the Giants while the team deals with injuries to starting back Ahmad Bradshaw. His breakout game came in Week 3 against the Carolina Panthers, where Brown impressed on Thursday Night Football by running for 113 yards and two touchdowns.

In his absence it will fall on rookie David Wilson, who has struggled this season with fumble issues. Thus far, head coach Tom Coughlin has been loath to lean on Wilson too much, giving him just six carries on the season. In 2012 he has coughed the ball up once in regular season play, which is a cited concern in his scouting report. However, given that Ahmad Bradshaw has had fumbling issues of his own on Sunday, it won't be quite the same liability to play Wilson against the Browns.
