Duane Brown is undergoing tests after injuring his leg in practice Wednesday during Houston Texans training camp. The offensive tackle reportedly had another player fall into his leg. Head coach Gary Kubiak was not particular optimistic about the injury, according to Adam Schefter.

Brown has started on the Texans' offensive line since being selected with the 26th overall pick in the first round in the 2008 NFL Draft out of Virginia Tech. Last season he was named second-team All-Pro by the Associated Press.
Brown's absence would be a huge blow to what has been one of the NFL's best offensive lines the past few seasons. The Texans were second in the league last year averaging 153 yards rushing per game.
