Duane Brown didn’t even make it two full games before suffering an injury.
The newly acquired Seattle Seahawks left tackle had his right ankle rolled up on during the second quarter of Seattle’s Thursday night showdown against the Arizona Cardinals. Brown was slow to get up, played the next snap, and then limped off the field. He did not return for the remainder of the half, and is questionable to return to the game.
The Seahawks have had consistent health problems at left tackle, stretching back to the final year of Walter Jones’ legendary career. Russell Okung missed at least one game in every season he played for Seattle (2010-2015), and the emergence of George Fant in 2016 arose when Bradley Sowell suffered an injury against the Cardinals. Fant was supposed to be Seattle’s starting left tackle this season, but had a season-ending ACL tear in preseason and was replaced by Rees Odhiambo, who is now on injured reserve due to hand injuries. Hopefully Brown’s injury is not too serious, because that would be devastating.
Matt Tobin is Seattle’s current left tackle, and the Seahawks lead their NFC West rivals 15-7 at halftime.
