Brandon Jacobs returns to practice

As expected, Giants running back Brandon Jacobs returned to practice today and participated in drills during the portion of practice open to the media.

He’s expected to be listed as a limited participant on the official injury report.

Jacobs sat out yesterday with some swelling in the knee, a condition that has become unpredictable for the 31-year-old running back who has not played since a breakout 106-yard performance against the Bears back on Oct. 10.-NJ.com

Jacobs could spell RB Andre Brown who returned to heavy 3 carry workload on Sunday. Neither back is fully healthy and could benefit from the rest that the other will bring.
