New York Giants running back Andre Brown has been cleared to practice after missing last week's game against San Francisco because of a concussion. Before the injury, Brown was the primary backup to Ahmad Bradshaw and earlier this season rushed for 113 yards and two touchdowns in a one-week stint as a starter.
Brown returns at a good time because Bradshaw is dealing with a foot injury and won't practice until Thursday. His biggest threat for playing time is now rookie David Wilson, who had seven carries for 35 yards on Sunday.
Fantasy Impact: Brown's best shot for playing time will likely involve an injury to Bradshaw, as Wilson seems to be closer to taking control of the No. 2 running back spot than he was at the start of the season.
Brown has proven to be a good fill-in for the Giants but it's not clear how much of a chance he will get to help fantasy owners going forward.
