New York Giants running back Brandon Jacobs says that he is ready to take on a larger role with the team.

Brandon Jacobs has said that he is prepared to take on a greater workload with the New York Giants.

The running back rejoined the NFC East side last month after Andre Brown fractured his leg during pre-season, rushing for 48 yards and a touchdown so far this campaign.

With David Wilson ruled out of tomorrow's game against the Chicago Bears, the 31-year-old told the team's official website: "My expectations, for me, are to go out and help this team win. Do something that we haven't done all year long and do whatever they need me to do.

"I can handle a full load, there's no question. I'd be hurting the next day, I'm not going to lie and say that, but I can definitely handle a full workload if I need to. We brought Da'Rel [Scott] back to do some stuff. I'm ready. Whatever they ask me, I'm ready to go. I'm in good shape, just whatever they ask me to do.

"I haven't had a ton of work over the last four or five years. It was a little shocking this past game when David went out. But it's football. At least I had an opportunity to get in there and do it with an offense I knew."

The Giants have lost all five of their games so far this season in the NFL.
