Evidently something has gone askew in the tracking of time here on earth. Despite the current dislocation in time and space, NC State will accept the situation as a near miss; but that doesn’t translate into good news for one of our all-time favorites – Andre Brown – as the former NC State running back and current New York Giants rookie injured his achilles tendon in practice yesterday and has been lost of the season. Link to story.
New York Giants rookie running back Andre Brown tore 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.
Shhhhh! God obviously thinks that Brown is still enrolled at NC State and meant to send this injury to the Wolfpack in response to our comments yesterday (just a few hours before Brown was injured)
It is with crossed fingers that I hold my breath and observe that it appears the Wolfpack has avoided too many unexpected losses to this point of practice.
Everyone pull out the rabbit’s foot for the next few weeks and hope that we can continue to avoid injury disaster in West Raleigh while also praying for Andre and wishing him a speedy recovery to get back on the field next year and fulfill the promise he was showing with the Giants before the injury.
