Duane Brown Injured Hand, Will "Miss Some Time"

All-Pro Texans left tackle Duane Brown has a mysterious hand injury that will cause him to miss this weekend's "dress rehearsal game" against the Saints. Brown's status for week one of the regular season may be in doubt as well.

Oh, this is just great. Not only is the third most important player on the Texans' offense already hurt in Arian Foster, but now the second most important one is hurt as well.

We have no specifics as to what happened, how it happened, or exactly how long Brown will be out, but I for one am now dreading the possibility of seeing Tamba Hali tee off against some second or third string tackle on Brian Hoyer’s blind side in the regular season opener. Hurray.
