Duane Brown could return vs. Titans

On Monday, Duane Brown participated in practice for the first time this season. 
The All-Pro left tackle missed all of OTAs, minicamps, and training camp while rehabbing from his January quadriceps surgery. Brown's return bodes well for his return to the starting lineup. Last week, O'Brien said he would not be back for Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans, but that there was "a shot" for Brown to make his season debut at Minnesota in Week 5. 
The (2-1) Texans will host the Tennessee Titans in their first AFC South game of the 2016 season on Sunday, Oct. 2. Kickoff is set for 12 noon.

On Monday, Duane Brown participated in practice for the first time this season.

"He looked good," head coach Bill O'Brien said Monday. "He's progressing well."

It's a positive sign for the Texans All-Pro left tackle, who missed all of OTAs, minicamps, and training camp while rehabbing from his January quadriceps surgery. Brown's presence on the practice field signals an impending return to the starting lineup as well. Last week, O'Brien said he would not be back for Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans, but that there was "a shot" for Brown to make his season debut at Minnesota in Week 5.

When asked about the chance of Brown returning for the Titans game, O'Brien was optimistic.

"Possibly this week, you never know," O'Brien said.
