The latest on Duane Brown's return, Braxton Miller

Duane Brown could make his first start of 2016 in the Texans Week 5 game at Minnesota. 
"I think he's closer," head coach Bill O'Brien said of Brown's return. "I don't think he will play against Tennessee, but I know that there's a shot for the next game." 
The Texans starting left tackle, who has been rehabbing from his January quadriceps surgery, was not placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list prior to the start of the season. He has been working with trainers on the side field but not yet participating in practice. 
Rookie wide receiver Braxton Miller, who was also inactive for Thursday night's game at New England, is dealing with a hamstring injury. Miller exited Sunday's game against Kansas City in the first quarter and did not return. 
"I don't think it's long term," O'Brien said. "I really don't. He's in there right now getting treatment, so we will see how it is this week." 
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.

The Texans starting left tackle has been rehabbing from his January quadriceps surgery. Brown was not placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list prior to the start of the season so he can return to the starting lineup as soon as he is ready. For now, he has been working with trainers on the side field but not yet participating in practice. 

Rookie wide receiver Braxton Miller, who was also inactive for Thursday night's game at New England, is still dealing with a hamstring injury. Miller exited Sunday's game against Kansas City in the first quarter and did not return. 

"I don't think it's long term," O'Brien said of Miller's injury. "I really don't. He's in there right now getting treatment, so we will see how it is this week." 

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.

The Texans fans showed up to support their favorite football team at Gillette Stadium on Thursday Night Football.
