Jammal Brown expected to go on IR today

The Redskins have to make a decision today on right tackle Jammal Brown, and it appears that decisions will be to place him on injured reserve.

He missed yet another practice Monday because of ongoing hip problems, which preseason surgery apparently didn’t fix, or didn’t fix soon enough. He was cleared to practice two weeks ago, but had a setback on Nov. 15 and hasn’t practice since.

I’ve got a feeling what direction we’re going,” Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said, via Mike Jones of the Washington Post.

The Redskins haven’t gotten much out of Brown since trading for him and giving him a $20.25 million contract. When he’s well, he’s an upgrade over what they have, but he’s shown little indication he’s going to stay that way.

    Yet another player with a throw away draft pick and money to burn.

    Cut him and cut your losses, this experiment is going nowhere…use his spot for someone else who can contribute!

    Nice guy and all, but they need guys that can play….let this be the LAST of Washington’s over-priced, under-performing free agent signings!!

    HAIL, there’s a new spirit, and a new attitude, and HOPE in RedskinsLand!!!!!

    Bust ! We have learned our lesson hopefully and will retain our picks from here on out. RG3 was the only exception obviously.

    Hes good player, to hear he aint healthy is disappointing. We have to fill that void or RG3 is gonna get crushed.

    This isn’t like that clown Laron Landry who refused to fix his broke-down Achilles, continued to hulk out in the weight room, and then left in a huff when he didn’t feel “appreciated”.

    Brown has done everything he can to fix his hip. It isn’t working, but it’s not a matter of desire. It seems to be a degenerative condition and there’s no reason this guy should be even bothering with football anymore.

    He should move on, find his second act in life.
