Jammal Brown officially shut down for season


The Redskins can stop waiting for right tackle Jammal Brown to return to the lineup.

The team announced Wednesday that Brown will not be activated from the physically unable to perform list. This week is the deadline to activate players from the list, so Brown will not play at all for the team this year. Tyler Polumbus will continue in Brown’s place on the right side of the offensive line.

Brown was well enough to start practicing earlier this month, but he suffered a setback with the hip injury that required surgery before the season and has bothered Brown since last season. That makes Wednesday’s announcement something less than a surprise and probably isn’t even much of a disappointment for a team that’s gotten used to playing without Brown this season.

Brown will end the year having played in just 27 games over the last four years, which could spell the end of his time in Washington. He’s due $3.5 million next year and it will be hard for the Redskins to commit to paying that without having more assurance that Brown will be on the field to earn it.

  1. he’s always been injury prone since his days with the Saints and was the reason he was traded to redskins and now they see what the saints saw in Brown…a injury prone talented tackle.

  2. If this past off season is any indication, he should be the LAST over-priced free agent signing for the Redskins for a long time to come….Bruce Allen simply HAS to be able to clearly see that the way to build a franchise is to have long term vision and constantly bring in youth, youth, and youth……

    Really? You really think that? Have you not paid attention to the way the Redskins have operated over the past decade?

    I take your post as sarcasm, because you can’t be that naive.

    I have to agree with blackqbwhiter.
    Watching the Redskins over the last couple of years that are trying to do it with youth. The free agents this year were guys on the up and up like Garcon. Will they be perfect every time? No, but show me an organization who is! I like the youth on this team and they will continue to improve. But hey; reading your comments sounds like you are a Cowboys fan and wouldn’t understand how a real GM is setting his team up for future success. Just saying!
