The Redskins haven’t had much good news lately, but they may be closer to getting a key piece back.

Right tackle Jammal Brown, who has spent the year on the physically unable to perform list, has been cleared to resume practicing, according to Mike Jones of the Washington Post.

Brown was bothered by hip injuries in the past, and had arthroscopic surgery in August.

They now have three weeks to decide to activate him.

Tyler Polumbus has started in his place, but Brown, when well, is a clear upgrade.

  1. “When Well” being the important words here. Hopefully he can return to his old form but for right now he is a shell of his former self in New Orleans

  2. I think polumbus has done a serviceable job at right tackle. Obviously he isn’t one of the top 10 right tackles in the league but they picked him up off the street and he hasn’t been a liability, and you rarely see him called for holding, false starts, etc…

  3. bigkahuna is spot on. I wouldn’t put Polumbus in the top anything, but for a right tackle who didn’t look good enough to start in the Arena League during his appearances last year, he has been playing better than anyone possibly could have expected. And based on Brown’s play over the last couple years, it’s unclear whether he can even take this job back from Polumbus.

    It’s actually kind of unfortunate that the combination of terrible secondary play, stone-handed receivers, and both Griffin and Morris playing like seasoned pros, is taking all the attention away from what has been an unexpectedly impressive year for Washington’s offensive line.

    The guy who you have to feel worst for there is Trent Williams, whose breakout year is flying way under the radar. So far he has “allowed” two sacks on the season, though both were counters where he actually shifted inside and left Logan Paulsen and Evan Royster to block Jared Allen and Justin Tuck respectively. Needless to say, those were poor play calls, but that doesn’t make it fair that, for whatever reason, no one is discussing how the previously underwhelming first rounder has quietly become one of the top three left tackles in the league.
