With the New York Giants facing 3rd down late in the third quarter down 14-10, Eli Manning had a tough throw to make to try and keep the football moving down the field. But the San Francisco 49ers defense has been swarming to the ball.
Unfortunately, it looks as if they took that a little too literally on this matchup, as Tarell Brown bore the brunt of one of his fellow 49ers defenders.
Brown appears to be out, as he went to the locker room with neck and thigh injuries. Tramaine Brock will take his place if Brown is unable to return for the rest of the game. And Manning made Brown pay later on in the game, when he found Mario Manningham (Brock's assignment) for the go-ahead touchdown early in the fourth quarter.
