    Giants still plan committee approach at running back

    Despite the likely loss of David Wilson to a neck injury, Giants coach Tom Couglin indicated he'll use a running back-by-committee approach. Rashad Jennings is the starter, with rookie Andre Williams, veteran Peyton Hills and Michael Cox and Kendall Gaskins also in the mix. "I think we have some talented guys at that spot," Coughlin told The Star-Ledger on Thursday. "I think Rashad has done well. I think the young kid (Williams) has come along the more we have given him to do. Michael Cox has had his spots."Gaskins did some pretty good things today. We'll let this thing play out. It'll be some kind of combination of people involved. They'll have plenty of opportunities in the preseason to show us what they can do and where they fit."

    Giants coach has 'set plan' for running backs Week 10

    With running backs Brandon Jacobs (hamstring) and Andre Brown (leg) expected to join the mix for playing time Week 10 vs. Oakland, the Giants are going to have a crowded backfield, which has featured Peyton Hillis and Michael Cox in recent weeks. Giants coach Tom Coughlin has an idea on how he will use his running backs, but he's not telling. "There will be a set plan," Coughlin said Wednesday. The Star-Ledger expects Hillis to be the primary back Sunday, with Jacobs and Brown being sprinkled into the running game. Brown, who has been out all season, is the real wild card. Brown said there will be a special package of plays installed for him, but it doesn't appear Coughlin is ready to give Brown a heavy workload in his first game back. "He's ready to help," Coughlin said. "But there is a big difference between game day and practice. All I think about is how he played a year ago. I'm looking forward to the return of that player, quite frankly."
