Updating this story, Ian Rapoport is now saying Duane Brown is “expected [to be] out Week One at least.”
#Texans LT Duane Brown, a holdout since the spring, has not shown up at the facility. HOU practices soon. Brown is expected out W1 at least.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) September 6, 2017
To the extent anyone still had hope that Duane Brown would ride to Tom Savage’s rescue in time for Sunday’s season opener against the Jaguars, it would appear that’s not in the cards. Strap yourselves in for a starting tackle tandem of Kendall Lamm and Breno Giacomini for at least a week and perhaps longer.
