Jammal Brown hopes to play again this season

Washington Redskins right tackle Jammal Brown said he has no plans to end his season on the injured reserve list. The Redskins have only three games left on the schedule, but Brown hopes to return to action in time to play in at least one.

Brown suffered a strained right groin during pre-game warm-ups Sunday. He had to be helped off the field and missed his second game of the season. Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said Monday that he doesn’t know how long the injury will sideline Brown, who first strained the groin during the Week 9 loss to San Francisco and couldn’t finish the game.

“JB – just a sore groin. Exactly when he’ll be able to come back, I’m not really sure. … We’ll find out more on Wednesday,” Shanahan said Monday.

After suffering the strain against San Francisco, Brown missed the following game at Miami, then came back to face Dallas. Brown said that his groin was more sore Monday than on Sunday. But the 6-foot-6, 313-pound Brown, who has played despite a bad hip, wants to play again this season.

“Naw, I don’t want to shut it down,” said Brown, who this offseason re-signed with Washington for a five-year, $27.5 million deal. “You only get so many opportunities to play in NFL games. So yeah, I’m still hoping to come back.”
