Seattle Seahawks tackle Duane Brown will not play...


The Seattle Seahawks, already expected to be without a handful of key defensive starters on Sunday, took another blow with the news that starting left tackle Duane Brown has been downgraded to out with a biceps injury.

Brown did not practice all week while dealing with the biceps injury, which first cropped up way back in Week 3 against the Saints.

Brown did not play in Week 6 and Week 7 with the injury, but returned and has played nearly every snap since then. As the team’s starting left tackle, Brown has been a huge part of the team’s success in the running game, and his veteran leadership and high football IQ are imperative parts of this team’s offensive attack.

Brown will be replaced by George Fant at left tackle. Fant, who normally plays the sixth lineman/tight end role, will likely be replaced by Jamaro Jones at that spot.

The Seahawks will also be without defensive tackle Al Woods on Sunday, who was suspended by the NFL for violating the league’s PED policy, and are not expected to have either safety Quandre Diggs or defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, who are both listed as doubtful.
