Jammal Brown Injury Update: Right Tackle To Miss 4-6 Weeks After Surgery

Jammal Brown's hip injury that has kept the right tackle out of training camp required a surgery that will keep the Redskins without their starter for at least another month.

Brown aggravated a right hip that needed surgery two years ago while running sprints just before training camp. He had hoped to be able to avoid going under the knife - he took two cortizone shots - but it didn't help, and he underwent the surgery Thursday.

Brown is expected to miss 4-6 weeks, and that's without considering that the two-time Pro Bowler hans't taken snaps at all during training camp. Tyler Polumbus has been holding down the right side of the line as the Redskins prepare for the season, and he'll continue to play the spot for the foreseeable future as the former No. 13 pick recovers from his injury.
