Houston Texans left tackle Duane Brown was carted off the field with a leg injury in the first quarter of Sunday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, but it was his teammates’ reaction to the injury that was unique.

Brown, a three-time Pro Bowl selection who has started at least 12 games in every season since he was Houston’s first-round pick in 2008, was injured blocking on a rushing attempt by running back Alfred Blue. Immediately after the injury, the entire Texans team left the sideline to offer support. It’s apparent that Brown has more than a few friends in the locker room.
