Pack Pros: NFL week 13

NFL Wolfpack players
Played at NC State
Andre Brown
New York Giants
The third-year running back broke his fibula during the 7-5 Giants' 38-10 win over the Packers on Nov. 25 ... At the time he went down, Brown had rushed for eight of the team's 14 touchdowns on the ground, and he had rushed 73 times for 385 yards (5.3 yards per rush) ... His average yards per attempt also led the team, and he had scored a rushing touchdown in five straight games, including a two-yard burst against Green Bay ... "It's going to be a tough loss," quarterback Eli Manning said. "He's an important player for us, obviously." ... The back is still tied for 7th in the NFL among non-kickers with 50 points scored, and only three players have more than his eight rushing scores ... Brown will miss the remainder of the season with the injury, but he was placed on recallable injured reserve, where he must stay for eight weeks ... However, that means he could make it back for the Super Bowl if the Giants make it.

Minnesota Vikings
The 6-6 Vikings lost to the Packers, 23-14 ... Cole has appeared in five games, but has not recorded any statistics in the regular season.
Jerricho Cotchery
Pittsburgh Steelers
Cotchery fractured multiple ribs in the week 11 loss to the Ravens, and has not played since ... However, coach Mike Tomlin said the injury is probably not a season-ending ailment ... Cotchery played in each of the 7-5 Steelers' 10 games, and has totaled 11 catches for 136 yards.
