The SportsXchange

Houston Texans left tackle Duane Brown did not make the trip to Baltimore for Sunday's game against the Ravens because of a toe injury, ESPN.com reported Saturday.

Brown was injured in the first half of last Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans. Brown, an All-Pro, finished the game after sitting out five plays but was later diagnosed with turf toe.

He started 78 straight games after getting selected by the Texans in the first round of the 2008 draft.

Coach Gary Kubiak said Brown could play as of Friday despite not practicing. He was listed as questionable on the team's injury report.

Ryan Harris will start in place of Brown. Harris started 18 games for the Denver Broncos, who drafted him in the third round in 2007. He has spent most of his career at right tackle.
