EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. –** A little more than nine months ago, safety Stevie Brown tore his left ACL. Last September 5, he underwent surgery to repair the ligament.
"I just think the rehab process and everything went pretty good," Brown said. "I came out here, limited in mind, but sometimes you just keep going. It hasn't really bothered me, so I'll just keep going."
Brown is always mindful of his knee, but doesn't feel limited on the field.
"Your body, I think, tells you (how much you can push yourself)," Brown said. "So far, mine's responding well with me doing what I can."
Brown is lining up next to Antrel Rolle in the back of the Giants' defense, as he did for much of the 2012 season, when he was second in the NFL with eight interceptions and set a franchise record with 307 return yards. Brown was twice named NFC Defensive Player of the Week.
"I knew that's where I wanted to be," Brown said. "I knew that I was going to work and wherever I fell on the depth chart is where I fell. Just keep going from there. Right now they have me next to 'Trel, so I'm staying next to 'Trel."
