New York Giants running backs coach Jerald Ingram believes Andre Brown will be ready to play after the Giants bye this week.

“I’m very confident,” Ingram said Tuesday via ESPN.com. “I think he’s practiced well in the last few weeks. He’s eager to get out there. He’s a competitor and he’s gone through an awful lot and he has a lot of pain in his heart and I think he’ll be ready to go.”

Ingram says Ingram won’t have any problems with fitting into their back field with Peyton Hillis and Brandon Jacobs.

“Andre is definitely going to fit in,” Ingram said. “We had plans for him before he got hurt. He’s very athletic. He catches the ball well out of the backfield and he runs the ball well and he’s got good speed. He’s that multipurpose back that can do a lot of things in first, second down and third down.”
