Left tackle Duane Brown took another positive step forward on Thursday, practicing with his teammates at the Houston Methodist Training Center. The 2012 All-Pro sprained a toe in his right foot during the Week 2 win over the Titans, and didn’t travel to Baltimore for Week 3. Head coach Gary Kubiak said Brown is still a gametime decision for Week 4 against Seattle.
“If he can play at his level,” Kubiak said. “We’re not going to put Duane in a real bad position. We’ve got to see him be able to do the things he’s capable of doing.”
Brown was also on the practice field Wednesday, but only took part in individual drills. Today, he took reps with the first team, and Brown said the differnce between practice and a game is big. He also is uncertain about his availability for Sunday.
"I'm not sure yet," Brown said. "Still a gametime decision."
Brown said he "felt pretty good" and that he was taking it one day at a time. Kubiak said Brown’s presence on Sunday would be an all-or-nothing venture.
“If he plays, he would go the full time,” Kubiak said. “It’s not like we’d play him and pull him out every 20 plays.”
Ryan Harris started in place of Brown on Sunday against the Ravens.
