CHENEY, Wash. -- Seattle Seahawks outside linebacker Chad Brown, a three-time Pro Bowl player, suffered a broken leg in practice on Monday.

Coach Mike Holmgren said doctors believe Brown likely will miss the first four games of the regular season. Holmgren said Brown broke his left fibula after getting his feet tangled with tight end Itula Mili during a passing drill.

Brown, 34, is entering his eighth season with the Seahawks. He was acquired as a free agent from Pittsburgh in 1997. Brown ranks fifth in Seahawks' history with 707 tackles and sixth in sacks with 47 sacks.

Holmgren said the Seahawks have no plans to trade for a linebacker. Reserve D.D. Lewis, listed as the backup at both outside linebacker positions, has been held out of contact drills while recovering from offseason shoulder surgery.
