Huddle Up: Brown, who was thought to be the clear backup to Arian Foster, apparently wasn't thought much of by the Texans' new coaching staff which released the veteran back two days after not playing him in the preseason opener. As to who is the Texans' No. 2 RB, take your pick between Jonathan Grimes and sixth-round rookie draft pick Alfred Blue. It won't be Dennis Johnson or rookie free agent Tim Cornett who were also shown the door Monday.

Huddle Up: The former N.Y. Giant Brown would seem to rate an edge over the sixth-round rookie Blue, and this could come into play if Arian Foster's health issues flare up again. Still, Gary Kubiak and his run-oriented attack are now in Baltimore, so don't expect the fantasy gold that was the Texans' ground game a few seasons ago.

Huddle Up: With Ben Tate gone, the Texans needed a RB2 behind Arian Foster, and they filled that bill with Brown, who had a career-high 8 rushing TDs in 2012 and followed that up with career bests in touches (159) and yards from scrimmage (595) this past season.

Huddle Up: The Texans could use some veteran Arian Foster insurance, and Brown is a viable option for that role.

Huddle Up: Brown missed the first half of the season with a leg fracture but returned to lead the team in rushing with 492 yards and 3 TDs in 8 games. Brown shouldn't be asking for the moon, but the Giants do need to listen given the uncertainty of fellow RB David Wilson's recovery from neck surgery.

Huddle Up: Brown still has the final concussion-protocol hurdles to clear, but he's on track to play in the Giants' season finale against the Redskins.

Huddle Up: It could be the Peyton Hillis show next week.

Huddle Up: We might have finally found a viable fantasy back in New York. Unlike Brandon Jacobs' big game a few weeks back, there is no reason to think Brown shouldn't keep producing. Barring injuries, of course.

Huddle Up: It'll be interesting to see how much playing time he gets right out of the gate, but the Giants might finally be getting some stability at the running back position.

Huddle Up: The Giants have a bye this weekend so definitely look for Brown back in action Week 10.

Huddle Up: Five RBs already have logged carries for the Giants this season with Brown set to join the mix in less than 2 weeks. His forte was goalline work a season ago, finishing with 8 TDs, but with the remainder of David Wilson's season a question mark due to a neck injury, Brown could easily lay claim to the lead-back role when he works himself back into game shape.
