Duane Brown, who returned from his holdout today, was not stretching with his teammates in the portion of practice open to the media but instead was working on a different field. He can practice, but would need to be added to the Texans' active roster to play in a game. That could happen as late as Saturday.

Left tackle Duane Brown, who returned from his holdout on Monday, chose not to answer questions about why he held out, instead saying he's “going to focus on the future and being here, being back at work.” He said he is “very ready to play” on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks, but whether he will is “up to the coaching staff.”

Texans left tackle Brown ends holdout, reports

Texans left tackle Duane Brown, who missed voluntary and mandatory offseason programs and did not report at the start of training camp, has ended his holdout and reported to NRG Stadium.

At 3-3, the Texans are still very much competing for the AFC South, thanks to rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson. Houston has been searching for a franchise quarterback, so regardless of what happens this season — and there's plenty to play for — more importantly, the Texans have hope for the future with Watson under center.
