Andre Brown says his shoulder is "good" despite being forced to leave the New York Giants' loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. Brown had seven carries for 20 yards before leaving, rewarding fantasy owners with a one-yard touchdown plunge in the second quarter.
There is no word yet on Brown's long-term healthy status. He has now recorded a touchdown carry in three straight games, giving him six total scores on the year to four for Bradshaw.
Fantasy Impact: Brown is now the Giants' de facto short yardage back, which significantly reduces Bradshaw's fantasy value. His lack of carries make him a risky fantasy option in standard leagues, though he was on track for a bigger role Sunday before the injury.
If Brown is out next week, Bradshaw's fantasy value will get a big boost against the Cincinnati Bengals. If Brown plays, the prospects for both backs take a big hit.
