When the 2020 season eventually kicks off, Duane Brown expects to be fully healthy. The veteran offensive tackle said he’s recovered from bicep and knee injuries that forced him to miss five games (including one playoff contest) last season.
“I didn’t get anything done to it,” Brown said (via Curtis Crabtree of ProFootballTalk.com). “It’s doing great. Been working out and haven’t really had any restrictions or limitations with it.
“Knee is doing great. Didn’t have any more work done. After the year (I) got it checked out and just got treatment done to it. And since then, just been working out, keeping it strong, moving around. Typical offseason for me at this point. Not nursing it too much so I’m doing pretty good.”
While Brown has only appeared in all 16 regular season games once since 2015, the Seahawks will still be relying on him to provide some veteran savvy to an offensive line that will feature three new starters. The four-time Pro Bowler also noted that he hasn’t considered retirement, although he’s set to turn 35 in August and will be entering his 13th NFL campaign.
“I don’t think about it too much,” Brown said “I tell myself I don’t want to put a number on when I want to walk away. I’m enjoying it. This year my goal is just to stay as healthy as possible and be out there every Sunday. That’s all I’m really concerned with.”
