The Houston Texans aren't sure if they'll have left tackle Duane Brown available for this weekend's matchup against the Baltimore Ravens, as the offensive lineman is dealing with a case of turf toe. Brown is currently sporting a walking boot, and he told CSN Houston that he's not sure whether or not he'll be able to 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."Turf toe sounds harmless enough, but Brown knows that it's an injury he'll have to be careful not to aggravate. He'll avoid rushing back so as to lessen his chances of re-injuring the toe, even if that means sitting out Week 3."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 suffered the injury Sunday against the Tennessee Titans. He had to exit the game for a few snaps when fellow offensive lineman Wade Smith rolled into his right foot. After having the foot wrapped Brown was able to return, but he realized after the game that he was dealing with a "pretty bad case of turf toe."If Brown isn't able to suit up against the Ravens, the Texans will likely call on Ryan Harris at left tackle. It would certainly be a blow to lose Brown, but Harris has started 36 games in the NFL dating back to 2007.Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt Looking for fantasy football advice?
