The Giants will be without running back Andre Brown in Week 1 after the team placed him on the injured reserve-designated to return list. Brown won't be able to return to action until after Week 8, but the Giants have a bye that following week, so Week 10 is the earliest date he could be back on the field.
With Brown sidelined with a leg fracture, David Wilson's role as the starter becomes even more important for New York.
Fantasy impact: If you didn't know Brown was out for a while, you probably aren't worried much about fantasy football. Browns' injury sounded more serious at first, but the fracture isn't bad enough to keep him out all season.
Wilson was already shaping up to be a top running back for 2013. With Brown out of the picture, though, there isn't any competition behind Wilson to worry about at this time. He's in for a breakout campaign.
