Jammal Brown Injury: Washington Redskins' RT Out For New York Giants Game

The Washington Redskins will have to face the New York Giants this Sunday without starting right tackle Jammal Brown, coach Mike Shanahan announced Friday, due to an injury to his right groin. Brown initially suffered the injury against the San Francisco 49ers on Nov. 6, and then re-aggravated it last Sunday while warming up to play the New England Patriots. He did not take the field in that game, leaving the Redskins--who had deactivated backup center Erik Cook prior to the game--scrambling to address Brown's unexpected absence.

According to Shanahan, Tyler Polumbus will start in Brown's place against New York. Willie Smith and Sean Locklear will share left-tackle duties. Washington signed Polumbus as a free agent on Nov. 9, just two weeks after the Seattle Seahawks released him. Polumbus played under Shanahan for one season with the Denver Broncos.

Kickoff for Washington's game against the Giants is set for Sunday, Dec. 18, at 1 PM. FOX has the telecast.
