Jammal Brown Injury Update: Redskins OL Recieves Cortisone Shot, Hopes To Avoid Surgery

Washington Redskins right tackle Jammal Brown has received a second cortisone shot on Wednesday to try to avoid surgery on his left hip. Brown had surgery on the hip previously in 2009, when he was playing for the New Orleans Saints.

Brown has been bothered by the hip during the past two seasons and had been doing yoga during the 2011 offseason to improve his flexibility. Brown re-injured his hip during conditioning sprints just prior to the start of Redskins camp on July 25. An MRI done on Brown's hip on July 31 showed inflammation, but no need for surgery.

There is no timetable for Brown's return from the physically unable to perform list. Treatment up to this point on the hip has reportedly not helped Brown's inflammation much.

Since joining the Redskins, Brown has started 26 of 32 regular season games.
