Giants RB Andre Brown suffers a concussion late in Sunday's game
Andre Brown left Sunday's game in overtime with a concussion. Brown said he was "all right" and making jokes on Twitter, but he will need to go through the league mandated concussion protocal before returning to practice or playing in the season finale.
This doesn't leave a lot of options at tailback for the Giants. If neither Payton Hillis (concussion) nor Andre Brown can play against the Redskins this week, it leaves rookie Michael Cox as the lone, healthy running back on the roster. Cox has averaged a mere 2 yards per carry, but the sample size is small and he might fare well against a weak Washington defense. If for no other reason than he will be the only capable back currently on their roster, consider Cox a "What the heck" flex play in week 17.
