Two-time Pro Bowler Jammal Brown will miss at least another month after having surgery Thursday to deal with a nagging problem in his right hip.
The 2005 first-round pick had surgery two years ago on a torn labrum, but reaggravated the hip just before training camp while running sprints. The right tackle had two cortizone shots to help get him into playing shape, but apparently the problem was severe enough to require surgery. The recovery is estimated to take 4-6 weeks.
Brown will start the season on the physically unable to perform list while Tyler Polumbus holds down the right tackle spot for the Redskins. Brown had been projected to be the team's starter at the spot, but hasn't been available while Polumbus has done the job throughout training camp.

Training camp is underway for the Washington Redskins, but it appears as though they already have a bit of bad news. Right tackle Jammal Brown is still suffering from a hip issue that has plagued him since last season.
Stephen Whyno of The Washington Times reports that Brown has been placed on the physically unable to perform list. He is still suffering from hip soreness, the same issue that kept him out of four games in 2011.
"You knew it was sore. You knew it could happen at any time, something like this," coach Mike Shanahan said. "You're just hoping it's a little flare-up, nothing major."
