Duane Brown inactive for Seahawks vs. Texans

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Seahawks and Texans will be without their starting left tackles in their matchup in Week 4.

Both the Texans and Seahawks will be vulnerable on the offensive line during their inter-conference clash in Week 4. Texans' left tackle Duane Brown is inactive for Sunday's game with a toe injury, according to Jim Corbett of USA Today. Seahawks' blindside protector Russell Okung has been put on the short-term injured reserve, so he will miss the contest as well.

The left tackles are both suffering from toe injuries and Brown has already missed one game for the Texans. He sat out Week 3's loss against the Ravens after being injured the week before against the Titans. This will also be Okung's second-straight absence after being injured against the 49ers in Week 2. Eight-year veteran Paul McQuistan is serving as Seattle's left tackle in Okung's absence, while Ryan Harris is filling in for Brown.

The Texans will host the Seahawks on Sunday at 1 p.m. ET on FOX.
