During a daily media press conference in front of the Houston media, injured Houston Texans left tackle Duane Brown spoke about not playing last week and gave an update on his injury.
Here are quotes from the press conference provided by www.houtstontexans.com.
Brown on having to watch the game from home:
“It was pretty tough. It was pretty tough having to sit at home watching it and not be able to be on the sidelines with the guys. It was very tough to watch.”
Brown on how much his toe injury will linger:
“The plan, the thing about is to not rush it back too much because, if I do, then it could be something could last a while. It’s recovering pretty rapidly right now. I think a little bit ahead of schedule than we previously though. I’m not too worried about it. I think I’ll be fine.”
Brown on the loss and the big picture:
“It’s a very long season. I think it’s a good thing that we’ve built up those expectations now, that people expect us to win every game we go out there. We expect the same thing, but it’s the NFL. We had a lot of mistakes out there that I think caught up to us against a good Baltimore team. But it’s one game and we have a very tough team we’re facing this week. I think the sense of urgency around here is at an all-time high. We know the position we’re in. We still have a very good football team and I think people need to realize that.”
