Jammal Brown Injury Likely To Sideline Washington Redskins' RT Vs. Miami Dolphins

Though the Washington Redskins have yet to rule out offensive tackle Jammal Brown for Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins, coach Mike Shanahan said it's unlikely the six-year veteran will play, according to Grant Paulsen. Brown missed the second half of last Sunday's loss to the San Francisco 49ers with a groin injury.

The Redskins' official Twitter account says Sean Locklear will start in Brown's place should the injury keep Brown out of action once again. Offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan said Locklear would be responsible for blocking Dolphins linebacker Cameron Wake, which is "bad news," Paulsen notes. Wake, who earned a Pro Bowl berth last year after tallying 14 sacks, ranks No. 13 in the NFL this year with 5.5.

Brown has two Pro Bowl appearances and one First-Team All-Pro honor dating from his four years with the New Orleans Saints. Based on those honors, it's fair to say Washington would stand a better chance of stopping Wake if Brown were healthy enough to play.
