Jacobs has since moved on by signing with the San Francisco 49ers. Now, the Giants are down another running back, at least for the first four games of the season. Andre Brown has been suspended for the first four games in 2012 for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs.
What does it mean? Well, Brown spent the entire 2011 season – including the postseason run to the Super Bowl – on the practice squad. Now, if the Giants were thinking of promoting Brown right away, they’ll need another plan.
