Duane Brown Ends Holdout

Houston Texans LT Duane Brown has ended his holdout and re-joined the team this morning, reports Ian Rapoport from the NFL Network. Apparently Brown is in great shape and ready to be plugged in at LT.

Holding out until week 7 has cost him about $5 million in fines and lost salary.

This turns out well for both player and team. Fill in LT Chris Clark is expected to miss some time with a calf injury, and the Texans are hot right now so it suits Brown to be playing on a prolific offense.

Whether or not he plays this week remains to be seen.
