Giants get offensive contributions


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) A few Giants made small offensive contributions Week 15. Louis Murphy caught both of his targets for 10 yards. Michael Cox had two carries for 1 yard, while Bear Pascoe rushed for two yards on one carry and caught one of his two targets for 7 yards.

The Giants will end the season at home against Washington.

Giants coach has 'set plan' for running backs Week 10


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/6/2013) With running backs Brandon Jacobs (hamstring) and Andre Brown (leg) expected to join the mix for playing time Week 10 vs. Oakland, the Giants are going to have a crowded backfield, which has featured Peyton Hillis and Michael Cox in recent weeks. Giants coach Tom Coughlin has an idea on how he will use his running backs, but he's not telling.

“There will be a set plan,” Coughlin said Wednesday.

The Star-Ledger expects Hillis to be the primary back Sunday, with Jacobs and Brown being sprinkled into the running game. Brown, who has been out all season, is the real wild card.

Brown said there will be a special package of plays installed for him, but it doesn't appear Coughlin is ready to give Brown a heavy workload in his first game back.

"He’s ready to help," Coughlin said. "But there is a big difference between game day and practice. All I think about is how he played a year ago. I’m looking forward to the return of that player, quite frankly."


Michael Cox does little Week 8 despite drawing start


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2013) Giants running back Michael Cox drew the start Week 8 at Philadelphia, but he was once again surpassed as the leading rusher by Peyton Hillis during a 15-7 win. Cox finished with nine carries for 19 yards, while adding one catch for 11 yards.

Cox received the first two carries of the game, but he totaled zero yards. He had four carries for 11 yards after the first two drives and had seven carries for 18 yards by halftime. But Hills was the more effective runner in the first half, totaling eight carries for 35 yards, so he got more work in the second half. Hillis finished with 70 yards on 20 carries.

The Giants are on a bye Week 9. When they return to action Week 10 vs. Oakland, running backs Brandon Jacobs (hamstring), David Wilson (neck) and Andre Brown (leg) could all be back from injuries, which would likely mean Cox slides down the depth chart again.


Michael Cox gets a lot of work


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2013) Giants rookie running back Michael Cox got his first 11 carries of the season in the win over Minnesota. He gained 23 yards and caught two passes for 1 yard.

Cox, who shared backfield duties with Peyton Hillis, visits the Eagles in Week 8.


MIchael Cox starting for Giants


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/21/2013) Giants rookie running back Michael Cox will start against the Vikings on Monday Night Football, reports the New York Daily News. Cox has yet to carry the ball this season.

He and newly-signed Peyton Hillis are expected to split snaps with David Wilson (neck) and Brandon Jacobs (hamstring) sidelined.


Michael Cox preparing to help running game Week 7


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/14/2013) With Giants rookie running back Michael Cox being the only healthy running back on the roster as of Monday, he said he's been told he will be playing Week 7 vs. Minnesota.

"That’s what they said. We’re going to see whether they do or not. I’m just getting ready to play," Cox told reporters Monday. "I feel like I’m ready to go, but obviously just working on everything, pass protection, just watching more film and the whole offense and everything."

Coach Tom Coughlin was hestiant when asked if Cox was ready to contribute on offense.

"He obviously has a lot going, but there are some things that I think right now we feel good about. There are other things not so (good), and we’re working on the not so," Coughlin said. "He’s young. It’s sophisticated and complex the things that are thrown at him, particularly in the protection area, so you’ve got to be careful."


Giants list Week 3 inactives


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/22/2013) Giants quarterback Ryan Nassib (ankle), running back Michael Cox, offensive lineman David Diehl (thumb), offensive lineman Brandon Mosley (back), tight end Adrien Robinson (foot) and defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins are among the team's inactives Week 3 at Carolina. 

Giants list Week 2 inactives


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/15/2013) The Giants made these players inactive for the game against the Broncos: running back Michael Cox, quarterback Ryan Nassib, linebacker Allen Bradford, offensive linemen David Diehl and Brandon Mosley, defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins and tight end Adrien Robinson (foot).

Giants align RB depth chart behind David Wilson


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2013) Heading into Week 1 against the Cowboys, the Giants have listed Da'Rel Scott as the No. 2 running back behind starter David Wilson. Michael Cox is listed as the third-string running back.

For now, David Wilson looks like a great Fantasy RB


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/29/2013) Giants running back David Wilson is in line to take on a lot of work in the Giants offense following the injury suffered by teammate Andre Brown. Brown was expected to work third downs and goal-line reps while Wilson did everything else. 

While Brown's timetable to return might be best ballparked at 8 weeks (maybe he plays later this year), there is no immediate backup/handcuff for Wilson, a positive for his Fantasy status. Rookie Michael Cox and veteran Da'Rel Scott are physical backs on the roster but neither have experience nor great ability to fully take Brown's role. Cox averaged less than 4.0 yards per carry last year at UMass. It is believed the Giants will consider other options including but not limited to current veteran free agents. 

As for Wilson, the prospect of a 275-touch season is very strong. He's shown off his wheels this preseason and didn't fumble on any of his 24 carries. The door is now open for him to work as a three-down back and conceivably cash in at the goal line a couple of times. You're looking at a back worth a late second-round pick in all formats. I like him better than Maurice Jones-Drew.
