NFL: Greenville Native Andre Brown Suffers Season Ending Injury

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -- New York Giants rookie running back Andre
Brown has torn the Achilles' tendon in his left leg and will be
lost for the season.

The fourth-round draft pick from North Carolina State was
running a pass route out of the backfield late in Friday evening's
practice at the University at Albany when the tendon ruptured as he
reached for a pass from David Carr.

Brown fell to the ground immediately and grabbed his leg. As he
was treated by trainers he covered his face with his jersey in
obvious pain.

Giants coach Tom Coughlin said that Brown will have surgery next
week.
