Duane Brown to miss Sunday’s game with hand injury
The Texans will be without their starting left tackle for their third preseason game of the year.
Coach Bill O’Brien said Friday that Duane Brown has a hand injury that will keep him out of Sunday’s matchup with the Saints. O’Brien said, via Tania Ganguli of ESPN.com, that Brown will miss some time with the injury, although he doesn’t think it is particularly serious.
O’Brien also said that Brown is not expected to miss any regular season action at this point, although he pointed out that could change depending on how Brown’s injury responds. Ganguli reported that Brown had a “cast-like thing” on his right hand.
If he were to be out of the lineup for Houston, it would be a blow to a team already missing running back Arian Foster as Brian Hoyer settles in as their starting quarterback.
