    The status of his injury? Or his play? I'd like to know why his play has regressed so far this season.

    He came back in, and he looked fine.

    He said someone fell on his leg and his ankle and toes hurt when it happened.

    Brown has an injured ankle and he came back n and played very well.

    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.

    Without our great left tackle we would have to start a more mobile QB. Somebody like the one who's 3rd on the depth chart.

    The play that the injury occurred on didn't seem awful. He was rolled up by the LG but it didn't seem to really catch his leg caught in the turf.

    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.

    i dont know, the 3 plays that harris filled in for him he did a great job. clean pocket. Plus Brown has been getting man handeled lately. I heard he dropped some weight in the off season but lord 5 pounds shouldnt make that big of a difference.

    OK, but don't you think TJ has as much mobility and would also be as effective in boots as Keenum ?

    Well, then it's a good thing. Man's ankle was too healthy, needs some pain to get his $^!+ together.

    Kubiak this afternoon said Brown has a "toe sprain."

    Translation..........TURF TOE.
