Ward suffers broken leg, out for season

        New York Giants running back Derrick Ward holds his facemask after being injured on a play in the fourth quarter of the football game against the Chicago Bears Sunday, Dec. 2, 2007. 

As if the New York Giants needed another injury to their running attack – or any injury for that matter – team head coach Tom Coughlin confirmed that running back Derrick Ward suffered a broken leg in Sunday’s 21-16 win over the Chicago Bears and is lost for the season.

The injury put a damper on what was otherwise a career rushing day for Ward, as he had rushed for 154 yards and a touchdown.  He was replaced by reserve RB Reuben Droughns.  If there is any good news from this, it would be that RB Brandon Jacobs is expected to return; Jacobs missed the last 2 games with a hamstring injury.  Droughns would be the #2 RB behind Jacobs.
