HOUSTON (AP) - Houston coach Gary Kubiak didn't need even a second to think before answering the question of what left tackle Duane Brown means to his team.
Kubiak says Brown means "everything" to the Texans.
The team certainly has much bigger names including Arian Foster, Andre Johnson and J.J. Watt. But to Kubiak, Brown's solid play has been one of the key's to his team's success.
Brown was a first-round pick in 2008, drafted to shore up an offensive line that had been terrible through the first few years of Houston's existence. He did just that, moving into the starting job immediately and starting all 16 games as a rookie. Brown started each game for Houston last year and has missed just four games in his five-year career with the Texans.
