The impending free agent started 11 games in 2012 and led the team with eight interceptions. He is close to full health again and the Giants are working with him on a new contract. They have exclusive rights to Brown through March 8.
"I mean, I feel like I'll be back, and I want to be back so it's more so you just have to wait for the process now," Brown told The Star-Ledger. "Wait for it all to happen upstairs and just go from there."
Strong safety Antrel Rolle (ankle) did not play Saturday but is expected back for the season opener.
Brown injured his left knee and it did not appear to happen on the contact. He was immediately surrounded by coaches and trainers on the field before being carried to the locker room, the New York Daily News reports.
Brown, who could put any weight on his left leg, was diagnosed with a knee sprain. The initial news was positive, but he'll likely have an MRI Sunday.
