Listening to 610 this morning and heard that as well. No need to panic yet but obviously not happy about it.

I think the word "carted" is always a reason to panic...

and it is now misleading...most players with any sort of injury in these practices gets carted off even shoulder/arm things.

Optimistically speaking, we are getting all our injuries out of the way so we can have an injury free season. Of course as fans, we do not know what that is.

He walked off the field without a limp right in front of where I was standing. Definitely wasn't carted off the field.

Thank you Sir for the clarification ! That's a relief. Yes, "carted off the field" and Duane Brown are 2 things a Texans fan never wants to see used together in the same sentence.

I expect he rode a cart over to Reliant for xrays. We pretty much saw the whole thing. Brown came off the field and laid down in the endzone area. Got up, limped back and forth for a bit. Held his ankle, then after a bit walked off - without a limp.

It was hot as hell out there. I bailed at 9 am, we were standing directly in the sun between the two fields.

He was carted to Reliant. Not off the field. Heck, I wouldn't want to walk from the field to Reliant if I was healthy, much less with a tweaked ankle.

Let's just pray it isn't the infamous "high ankle sprain".

And, Glasshalffull is a young lady. One of the nicest A&M fans I've met. Ha

If its still attached, he will be fine. Duane's a tough guy, he could play with a broken arm and still be a top 5 tackle.

Duane Brown's injury is to his left ankle. A teammate fell on it. He stayed in for 1-2 more reps & walked off field under own power

Brown was hurt on a running play during 9-on-7s when a teammate fell into his leg. He stayed on the field for one more snap before walking off under his own power. After trainers iced down his ankle on the sideline, Brown was carted across the street to Reliant Stadium for an MRI to determine the severity of the injury.

“He got rolled up, kind of got hit on the outside of his leg,” Texans coach Gary Kubiak said. “It’s part of football, unfortunately. We’ll hold our breath. Hopefully, he’s OK.”

Eversion ankle sprains (foot turned to the outside) (potentially caused by a hit to the outer leg as described) make up only ~10% of all ankle sprains (90% are inversion sprains [foot turned to the inside]). The thing that you worry about the most is that eversion ankle sprains are very commonly associated with a fracture of the fibula bone. Hopefully, beyond a simple stretch of the deltoid ligaments of the inner ankle, it was not violent enough to produce a fracture. Since he walked off the field, supposedly without a limp, fracture is less likely, but would not rule out a stress fracture. The MRI has the best chance of identifying the severity of his injury.


This is an iillustration of severe eversion injury. On the apparent right side, you see a total extensive separation fracture of the fibula. With a stress fracture, there would be a sometimes almost imperceptible hairline fracture instead.

A high ankle sprain mechanism can occur with a hit to the outer leg (as described) that causes a twist motion to the ankle region. Mechanism of injury in a high ankle sprain caused by injury to the tibiofibular connecting ligaments. This mechanism involves dorsiflexion and eversion of the ankle with internal rotation of the tibia.

In practice coaches don't want guys going to the ground. They don't want you taking guys to the ground.

It happens of course, but you always hear coaches yelling "stay up" or "stay on your feet".

Hey - that's exactly what happened to me! Only, it wasn't a hit - I stepped off a curb (to just connect another thread on the board, it was at a Chick-Fil-A...), landed awkwardly on my right foot which twisted inward and gave me an inversion sprain, and then came down really awkwardly on my left foot leading to an eversion sprain and 3 breaks. Had two surgeries (second was to "fix" the first one - hint: don't break an ankle on the 4th of July and get some random Orthopedic Surgeon on call who no one at the hospital even knows...), weeks of recovery, and then more weeks of PT, and it still wasn't back to 100% for about a year.

I certainly appreciate all of that, because once when playing I got my elbow dislocated when I was on the ground and got stepped on.
You don't like to get knocked off your feet anytime, in a game or practice, but it happens, especially in the NFL where many of these guys are practicing full-tilt because they don't want to get cut. It's their bread-and-butter, how they pay the bills, it's now how they make a living, not a game anymore to them.

“TexansNation I’m good!!!!Thanks for the thoughts and concerns!”

It’s unclear how much time, if any, Brown will miss, but it doesn’t sound like it will be much. Which means all of ‘Texans Nation’ can breathe a sigh of relief.

We’ll have more on Brown’s injury from Texans head coach Gary Kubiak later this afternoon.

Preliminary apparently good news. Would await Kubiak's official report on the MRI before celebrating.

Guess I'm a cynic here, but this might give the Texans a bit more leverage
to lock-up Duane on their terms rather than his ?

Because of a minor ankle sprain in TC? Not likely...... He'll want at least top 10 tackle money. Most likely Top 5.

The terms ‘bone bruises’ and ‘bone contusions’ are commonly used to refer to areas of localised bony tenderness after a traumatic injury, where there is no X-ray evidence of fracture. These painful injuries are classified as ‘sub-periosteal haematomas’ (see insert of diagram below for relationship of periosteum cover to bone layers) while they can persist for several weeks, they usually resolve spontaneously with no further consequences. The bone itself in these injuries are not primarily injured. The periosteum is a thick, fibrous membrane that covers and helps nourish our bones. It is very vascular, meaning is has a large blood supply to it, so when there is a traumatic force applied to a bone, like jamming your shin on a coffee table, it can cause bleeding between the membrane and the bone...but still outside the bone.

http://www.fashion-reply.com/img/eb/outer-layer-forms-periosteum-of-skull/336139-405993-406697-406810.jpg

However, ‘bone bruise’ is also used to describe lesions which are quite distinct from sub-periosteal haematomas. There may be only a minor difference between these bone bruises and a stress fracture, both being produced by compressive forces, and both only being able to be detected through MRI. Basically, this type of bone bruise comprises of a simple injury in which there is damage to the bone itself is superficial. The injury is essentially a precursor to a bone fracture. In this type of injury the cortex (outer layer) of the bone is damaged. In a bone bruise only a small amount of damage happens to the bone, yet it can cause bleeding into and outside of the bone. Even though not a fracture, a bone bruise usually causes quite severe pain that does not go away easily and is likely to last for months. These type of bone bruises likewise take a prolonged time to heal as the injury also affects the innermost part (medullary/marrow layer) of the bone.
Should this be the case, there is additional concern of subsequent development of arthritis.

http://medicalimages.allrefer.com/large/bone-bruise.jpg

Micro-current (electro)therapy is a technique that is usually used to try to facilitate the bone healing in these cases of “bone bruise. It essentially tries to stimulate the bone to heal quicker by mimicing those electrical signals normally delivered by the body to heal bone damage.

Hopefully, the report is reflecting a “bone bruise” in the fashion of a “periosteal hematoma”.............not one of a cortical damage type.

I'm not saying he's damaged merchandise, because I realize (thankfully !) that
the injury is very minor, insignificant. What I'm saying is it might have Duane thinking "dang, what if I were to have a really serious injury, blow out a knee or something ?". It might soften him up psychologically, make him more "flexible" in negotiating/accepting the terms of an offer from the Texas ? After all he's a married man now, got responsibilities.
