Duane Brown suffers hand injury, Ryan Mallett returns to Texans' practice
Two things came as expected from Houston Texans practice on Friday morning.
Backup quarterback Ryan Mallett was back at practice and head coach Bill O'Brien said the reason for Mallett's absence from Thursday’s practice will remain between he and the quarterback.
In advance of taking questions from the media, O’Brien also said left tackle Duane Brown has a hand injury and did not practice. He categorized the injury as day-to-day and said he didn't expect him to miss a regular season game.
Brown will not play against the Saints on Sunday in the Texans' third preseason game.
O'Brien also added that while he did expect the injury to heal on its own, you never know with injuries, so he reserves the right to change his answer as the opener on Sept. 13 draws closer.
O'Brien praised the play of QB Brian Hoyer in the day's practice, saying it was one of his best practices. Mallett remains the backup quarterback.
Whereas most teams will play their starters through the first half and often into the third quarter of the third preseason game, O'Brien indicated their use of starters in the upcoming game would more closely resemble the pattern they used in the first two games.
The Texans starting quarterback played only one series in the first preseason game, then only two in the second preseason game.
