Seahawks coach Pete Carroll expects LT Duane Brown (ankle) to be a game-time decision for Monday's game against the Falcons.

Considering how positively Carroll usually tries to spin injury information, this probably means Brown is on the wrong side of questionable. It would be a huge loss for Russell Wilson, who got battered after Brown departed against the Cardinals in Week 10.

Seahawks LT Duane Brown was forced from Thursday's game against the Cardinals with an ankle injury.

Brown went down in the first half. He was announced as "questionable," but never returned. Matt Tobin finished the game at left tackle. Brown will have 11 days to get healthy for Week 11 against the Falcons on Monday Night Football.
Nov 9 - 11:26 PM

Seahawks acquired LT Duane Brown from the Texans in exchange for CB Jeremy Lane, a 2018 fifth-round pick, and a 2019 second-round pick.

The Texans just played in Seattle on Sunday, and it was Brown's first game of the season after a seven-week holdout. He played all but three snaps and performed well for not being on a field for months and only having a week of practice. Brown made noise last week after owner Bob McNair's insensitive remarks and very clearly wanted out of Houston. Brown had been holding out for a new contract, so it will be interesting to see if GM John Schneider gives it to him. Brown is 32 and signed through 2018. In the short term, he'll immediately replace Rees Odhiambo at left tackle and provides a big upgrade to Seattle's weakest spot.
Oct 30 - 7:07 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Seahawks "have had talks" about Texans LT Duane Brown.

Seattle has been searching for a left tackle for quite some time, and Brown was already unsettled before Bob McNair's insensitive comments this week. RapSheet also reports the Seahawks would consider moving Jimmy Graham, a move which could appeal to the Texans with C.J. Fiedorowicz (concussion) on injured reserve for at least the next couple weeks. All of that said, the NFL's trade deadline, October 31 this year, is almost always a dud.
Oct 29 - 8:33 AM

Texans LT Duane Brown has been activated for Week 8 against the Seahawks.

Brown held out for the first seven weeks due to his contract. He should slide right into the starting role with LT Chris Clark sidelined. Brown is a big upgrade in pass-protection. The Texans waived LT Kendall Lamm to make room for Brown's return.
Oct 28 - 12:59 PM

Texans LT Duane Brown admitted his team was eventually persuaded to practice on Friday -- albeit without DeAndre Hopkins -- but said the situation involving owner Bob McNair's insensitive comments regarding NFL players is "not over."

Brown said Texans players will "reconvene" to discuss their next course of action. At very least, a protest of some sort seems likely after McNair called NFL players "inmates" in a "prison" at a recent owners-players meeting designed to bridge the gap on social issues. National and local Houston reporters have suggested a fallout from McNair's comments will "reverberate around the league."
Oct 27 - 3:06 PM

Texans LT Duane Brown has a "good chance" to play this week.

Brown held out the first seven weeks over his contract. He's reportedly in shape, and with fill-in LT Chris Clark sidelined, should immediately regain his starting role. There could be a rust-factor in Brown first game back, but he's an upgrade in pass protection for Deshaun Watson.
Oct 25 - 5:54 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Texans LT Duane Brown will not be traded.

Brown ended his holdout by reporting to the team on Monday. It is good timing for the Texans with fill-in LT Chris Clark expected to miss some time with a calf injury, although it remains to be seen if Brown will be ready to play this week. For what it is worth, the tackle says he is "in shape" and ready to go. When he does get back on the field, Brown will be a big upgrade for an offense which is already trending the right way with rookie Deshaun Watson at quarterback.
Oct 23 - 10:14 AM

Texans LT Duane Brown ended his holdout and has rejoined the team.

Brown had to report this week to prevent his contract from tolling. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Brown is physically ready to practice, but it remains to be seen if the Texans will welcome him back with open arms. Pro Football Talk reported Sunday the Texans are open to trading the left tackle.
Oct 23 - 9:35 AM

ProFootballTalk reports the Texans are open to trading holdout LT Duane Brown.

Brown has skipped the first six games over a contract dispute. There's speculation he'll return in Week 8 to avoid his deal from tolling, but it's not clear if the Texans want him back. Brown is one of the bigger names that could be moved ahead of the trade deadline. The Seahawks and Cardinals are contenders that need an upgrade at left tackle.
Oct 22 - 11:09 AM

Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio reports there is "no end in sight" for Texans LT Duane Brown's holdout.

Brown will have to show up around Week 8 to make sure his contract does not toll, but it does not look like he is planning to end his holdout before then. The Texans also are not interested in playing ball and have not had any negotiations with the left tackle since the holdout began. At this point, a trade may be the best outcome for both sides.
Sep 26 - 11:04 AM

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports Texans LT Duane Brown is willing to hold out half the season.

La Canfora says, barring a new deal, Brown will not report to the team until after the Week 7 bye "at the earliest." This may just be public posturing from his negotiating team with the Texans still unwilling to come to the table, but it makes sense for Brown to take the hold out all the way at this point. Brown needs to spend at least eight games on the active roster to prevent his contract from tolling.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports holdout LT Duane Brown has yet to report to the Texans and is expected to sit Week 1 against the Jaguars.

Well into preparation for Jacksonville, the Texans likely wouldn't even be able to thrust Brown into the lineup if he were to suddenly report. Brown sat out the entire summer, and there doesn't appear to be an end to his holdout in sight. Houston is expected to turn to Kendall Lamm at left tackle Sunday. Obviously, it's a significant downgrade for the entire offense, especially Lamar Miller.
Sep 6 - 11:10 AM

Speaking Monday, holdout Texans LT Duane Brown says he will "definitely" play in 2017.

Brown did not specify when he might return, though he did say he's "always in shape." Barring a dramatic change in the next 24 hours, Brown is going to miss Sunday's opener against the Jaguars. Brown can't miss more than 10 games if he wants to avoid his contract tolling to 2018.
