Redskins RT Brown has hip surgery, out 4-6 wks
Monday, August 27, 2012
ASHBURN, Va. (AP) -- Washington Redskins right tackle Jammal Brown has undergone another surgery on his left hip, ruling him out for four to six more weeks.
Coach Mike Shanahan said Monday that he will meet with Brown to determine the lineman's future.
Brown missed the 2009 season after hip surgery when he was with the New Orleans Saints. The Redskins traded for him, but he hasn't been able to regain the form that earned him Pro Bowl trips in 2006 and 2008.
Brown missed the last four games of last season when his hip flared up again, then injured it again while running sprints on the eve of this year's training camp.
Brown's injury makes Tyler Polumbus the starting right tackle. Polumbus started three games last season.
