Brown (contract dispute) is prepared to extend his holdout until their Week 8 game against the Seahawks, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports.
The 32-year-old, who has two years remaining on his contract, has been absent from the Texans since the beginning of offseason activities and is seeking to renegotiate a deal that would guarantee his contract for 2018. The 1-1 Texans have sorely missed the presence of their top offensive tackle early on in the season, with quarterbacks Tom Savage and Deshaun Watson getting sacked a combined 13 times through two games. The team's inability to protect against the pass rush has limited its offensive productivity to date, and while Brown's eventual return might not remedy those problems completely, he'd certainly help the situation.
Brown (contract dispute) won't play Sunday's game against Jacksonville, Kevin Patra of NFL.com reports.
Brown reported that he does plan on playing football in 2017, but it's still unclear when he'll budge from his demand for a new contract from Houston. In the meantime, Chris Clark will fill in at left tackle.
Brown was placed on the Did Not Report list Tuesday as a result of his holdout.
Being officially placed on this list allows the Texans to fine Brown $40,000 per day missed until this issue is shored up. Brown is currently holding out because of a distaste for his current contract, but it's expected that this will be resolved by the regular season.
Brown will not report for the start of training camp amid a dispute regarding his contract, John McClain of The Houston Chronicle reports.
Houston will kick off camp Wednesday without its starting left tackle as Brown remains unhappy with his current contract with the team, which has two years remaining. However, McClain notes that it would be surprising if Brown's holdout lingered late into the preseason. Kendall Lamm stands to see increased reps at left tackle while Brown is away from the team, but look Brown's contract issue to be resolved later in camp.
Brown is not expected to report for the start of training camp due to his unhappiness with his contract, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Brown, Houston's 31-year-old left tackle, skipped the entire offseason, feeling his contract has become outdated over time as new tackle deals have surpassed Brown's deal. The Texans are holding fast to their policy of not negotiating deals with two years left on them, and it's unclear if a compromise can be reached. At this point, Brown is not expected to miss regular-season games because of the dispute.
