Brown isn't the only LT to have a rough game against Freeney. Don't panic over one poor game from him.

Ankle injuries can at times not immediately demonstrate significant performance deficiency, especially if immediately wrapped. However, within 48 hours when swelling has been given a time to develop, the physical effects can change and present dramatically. Let me remind you that Brown was already listed with an "ankle" on the injury report, making it somewhat more concerning. At this point, an MRI will probably be performed tomorrow to make a definitive decision on the presence or absence of additional damage. We should know more after that......maybe.

It doesn't take much to turn a simple ankle sprain to high ankle sprain...........just a little twist while your cleats catch in the turf. Let's hope that is not the case.

All depends on how severe.

http://www.beantownphysio.com/images/pt-tip/turf-toe/anatomy.png

Typically a player with a grade 1 sprain may finish the game or practice and report pain in the MTP (metatarsal phalangeal) joint (2nd big toe joint), but may not recall the exact play during which the injury occurred. Diagnosis is usually supported by mild to moderate tenderness upon palpation of the plantar aspect of the MTP joint and pain with passive terminal dorsiflexion of the joint. Weight bearing is usually tolerable and swelling minimal.

Treatment of turf toe in football is dependent on the grade and severity of the hyperextension injury. The successful nonoperative treatment of turf toe injuries is well documented. Athletes with grade 1 tendon injuries often miss little or no playing time. These athletes are later treated with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE). Immobilization is rarely necessary. Athletes can often return to play with a combination of “turf toe taping,” shoe wear modification, or application of a more rigid insole (so that the big toe can't bend upwards further tear the undersurface tendon.

A player with a grade 2 turf toe injury presents with swelling and pain during weight bearing and often guard against passive dorsiflexion. They can many times be shot up, taped, given an unyielding insole, and returned to finish the game. The typical football player with a grade 2 turf toe injury may or may not be placed in a boot for just a couple of days, then treated with the same regimen as for grade1 (except longer) and will miss one to two weeks of competition but may have persistent symptoms during games or practice upon returning to play.

Since in a grade 2 injury the player will definitely know when it happened, I suspect that Brown sustained this type of injury. But they may try to have him "rub some dirt on it" and shoot him up and try to treat him as a grade 1. I hope this is not the case and he has only a grade 1. Even with a grade 1, they need to give him at least a couple of days of rest from practice. Of course, we'll see.

I would rule out grade 3 (complete tear) in Brown, as this is an excruciatingly painful injury that you cannot be shot up and return. This injury typically takes 4-6 weeks to heal....if it heals at all. If it doesn't, surgery is necessary, leading to a good 3-4 month rehab.

I heard D. Brown on the radio this morning talking about how much pain he was in during the game. He indicated that his ANKLE was in a great deal of pain and but for the tape job the trainers did, he probably wouldn't have been able to out there.

Is anyone else starting to get worried about this? We can lose a lot of players and still potentially make a deep playoff, but Brown is irreplaceable.

It actually makes sense. I laid out how he may have come back into the game after an ankle. If Kubiak got it right, and he did have a turf toe...........he suffered both a turf toe and an ankle injury aggravation, unfortunately most probably high ankle, during the game.

Ankle injuries can at times not immediately demonstrate significant performance deficiency, especially if immediately wrapped. However, within 48 hours when swelling has been given a time to develop, the physical effects can change and present dramatically. Let me remind you that Brown was already listed with an "ankle" on the injury report, making it somewhat more concerning.

************************************************** ************

From a Dave Zangaro article (http://www.csnhouston.com/football-houston-texans/talk/turf-toe-brown%E2%80%99s-status-uncertain) published this evening:

Duane Brown’s status is uncertain as the Texans head into their Week 3 game against the Ravens. He’s suffering from turf toe.

Brown is wearing a walking boot on his right foot and will for a day or two. He isn't sure if he'll practice this week.

"That's what it looks like right now," Brown said on CSN's SportsTalk Live about being a game-time decision. "We have practice tomorrow, Thursday and Friday. We'll just see, man. I really can't tell you how it's gonna work out. I'd love to be out there at Baltimore this weekend. But I really don't know right now."

Brown said turf toe is an injury he needs to be careful to not re-injure.

"I need to be smart with it," Brown said after his television appearance. "I'm not trying to rush back but I want to get back as soon as possible."

Brown played in 78 of 82 snaps on Sunday. After left guard Wade Smith rolled into his right foot, Brown missed just four snaps. He had his foot taped and returned for the rest of the game. He said when it first happened, his ankle hurt but that pain eventually subsided. He said his adrenaline helped him get through the game.

"Doing pretty good," Brown said on STL. "Had a bit of a scare. Had someone fall on me. Injured my right big toe. It's a pretty bad case of turf toe. Just taking it one day at at time, see how it heals by the end of the week."

If the Texans and Brown are not "smart" in bringing him back, he may soon find himself dealing with an extension of his tear, possibly to grade 3.

"pretty bad case of turf toe" doesn't sound good at all...


http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/4852/duane-brown

Texans LT Duane Brown revealed that he injured his right big toe in Sunday's overtime win over the Titans and may miss Week 3 at Baltimore.
"Injured my right big toe," Brown said. "It's a pretty bad case of turf toe. Just taking it one day at a time, see how it heals by the end of the week." Brown added that it "looks like" he'll be a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt with the Ravens. Brown graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 2 left tackle last season. His loss would be a huge one. If Brown sits out, Ryan Harris will fill in. Terrell Suggs plays the right edge, so Harris would be in for a long day. Sep 17 - 8:14 PM

Something that bothers me a great deal is that if he had a grade 2 turf toe and at is pretty well confirmed that it is at least that, shooting him up and taping his toe, and sending him back out there again is not how you treat this injury. Taping of a toe alone does not protect an acutely injured toe from additional trauma. With this injury, you are told that not availing it to appropriate timely treatment, either immediately or later in the rehab can cause, not only prolonged recovery, but also extension of the injury leading to permanent damage of the joint.

A "bad" turf toe is nothing to fool around with. Significant disability can occur with damage to structures of the 1st MTP joint complex. A study of NFL players including ALL of those with turf toe clearly demonstrated that 50% had persistent symptoms after 5 years. Possible long term effects included failure to regain push-off strength.

Surgery is also indicated when conservative treatment fails – evidenced by persistant pain with pushing-off, cutting, or pivoting. Athletes are usually able to return to sport 3-4 months after surgery, but it may be 6-12 months before pre-injury level of function is achieved........and as we all know some players at that point never come back.

This is not meant to be a discouraging post, but I have to question why our elite LT was not removed from the game and taken for imaging studies to establish a solid diagnosis prior to exposing him to added potentially very counterproductive trauma. If he needed a boot AFTER the game by the next day....... after which he had the necessary evaluation, he certainly needed it immediately AFTER the injury. The commonly used phrase around here, "We're going to play it 'smart' with him" begs for a definition of "smart.

The thing is I see the Texans beating teams like Seattle or San Fran. Their quarterbacks aren't Brady or Rodgers. If Kubiak and Wade come with an unpredictable game plan I see the Texans beating both of those teams. If the game against seattle was in seattle then I could see saying the texans don't have a chance.

Not much assumption. Reviewing the way Wade Smith fell on the back of Brown's leg in the 2nd quarter is classic mechanics for a turf toe injury.

Smith is in red. Brown is in white. (leg position in this example illustration is mirror image.....right and left transposed)

Maybe Kubiak needs to start staying at a Holiday Inn Express cuz he's very rarely smart with these decisions. Some injuries you can gut out, others you can't.

Maybe Brown didn't mention the toe on the sideline because he wanted to get back in the game or the ankle injury was painful and general enough that it masked the specific pain to the toe?

Either way, one would expect the medical staff for a professional sports team to be able to diagnose injuries well enough to protect a player from himself.

(on Duane Brown’s improvement) “Yeah, just the swelling and stuff is better. Like I think I’ve told you, I don’t want him coming on the field. We’re keeping him in a boot. He’s not in a boot the whole time, but when he is out walking around and stuff. I don’t want him standing out there and watching practice for two hours.

We have some tough games coming up but bigger plans in the post season. Just give the man the chance to recover. A healthy Duane Brown for 10 or 11 games is greater than a 60% Brown for X amount of plays in one game and Ryan Harris for the rest of the season.

A healthy Brown coming into the post season is greater than the above scenario. That way, we can come roaring into the post season ala the NYG's or the Ravens and get hot at the right time. We can lose these next few games, against elite teams, and still get into the playoffs.

I think this means you will see Jones/FB or a TE line up on the left side to help Harris. You might also see some 3 TE sets. This was not all that uncommon to see in Brown's first 3 years when he needed help.

A heavy dose of Arian Foster and Ben Tate which is fine. I believe we'll find a way to gut one out. They don't have Jacoby Jones or Ray Rice. Well, even if Rice plays his bad hip will make him a non factor. It could a low-scoring dog fight. The key is going to be what kind of pass rush we can generate on Joe Flacco.

The defense needs to be lights out and Chris Meyers needs to step his game up big time.

It's not like Duane has been playing great this year.

Amazingly as it may sound, the right side is holding up better than the Pro-Bowl left side so far.

At the very least, the Texans are getting their money worth on the right side.

Yup.

It's always a chore against Gnata, but he might not line up over Center that much.

Its official. He's OUT for tomorrow vs Ravens. This ends his 78 game streak.
Ryan Harris better do good. Good Luck Matt Schaub.

Does this means Suggs sacks Matt Schaub so hard he breaks his neck and we miss the playoffs and our Super Bowl window? What window? According to the great Jerome Solomon, there's no such thing.

Heck, guys like Andre come along every draft. :sarcasm:

With Brown gone, the Ravens will be trying to use Schaub as their door Matt.

Anyone remember that game last year where Schaub considered blocking Suggs? That was hilarious.

Harris is actually a more competent pass protector than Newton...
