After missing the previous two games with a groin injury, right tackle Jammal Brown should be able to return to action Saturday against Minnesota, Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan said.
Brown was again limited in practice with a groin injury Thursday but the Redskins have noticed progress this week.
“If there’s no setback, hopefully he’ll be able to go,” Shanahan said.
Veteran lineman Tyler Polumbus started the past two games in Brown’s place.
Also limited in Thursday’s practice were linebacker London Fletcher (ankle) and running back Roy Helu (toe/knee). It’s not clear their exact status for Saturday’s game, though Fletcher isn’t one to miss a game and Helu was able to play the entirety of last Sunday’s win over the Giants.
Asked how Helu has looked in practice this week, Shanahan said, “Limited.”
Though Thursday marked the final full practice of the week, the final injury report won’t come out until Friday, which will list which players are out, doubtful, questionable or probable for this weekend’s games.
A trio of Redskins nursing ailments were all able to fully participate in Thursday’s practice: defensive end Stephen Bowen (knee), cornerback Josh Wilson (head/chest) and punter Sav Rocca (ankle).
