Redskins' tackle cleared for practice, but is not off the PUP list.
Washington Redskins' right tackle Jammal Brown, who has been listed on the physically unable to perform list, has been cleared to practice the organization announced Tuesday. Brown will remain on the PUP list for the time being.
Brown, 6'6, 317 pounds, spent the last two seasons as a starter on the Redskins line where he made 16 starts. However, the eight-year veteran had a hip injury that required arthroscopic surgery in August.
According to The Washington Post, the Redskins will have three weeks to decide whether or not they want to activate him from the PUP list or place him on injured reserve.
Currently, Washington is playing Tyler Polumbus (6'8, 305) at right tackle and have struggled to protect quarterback Robert Griffin III. Overall, the Redskins' offensive line is ranked 23rd in the league in sacks allowed (21).
The Redskins made three other roster moves: The team waived cornerback David Jones and long snapper Justin Snow, signed cornerback Domonique Johnson to the practice squad, and activated long snapper Nick Sunderberg from the reserved/injured list.
