Brown has been hampered by the hip in each of the last two seasons, and he re-injured it running sprints during team conditioning drills on the eve of Washington’s training camp July 25.

Brown had an MRI conducted in New York on July 31. Coach Mike Shanahan said the next day that the findings showed Brown had inflammation in his hip, but would not need surgery and would continue to receive treatment from the team’s medical staff in the hope he could return to action.

No timetable was set for Brown’s return. He has remained on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list, but so far, the treatment hasn’t helped much.

Last Saturday, Shanahan said, “He is still pretty sore. He gets treatment a couple times a day. I don’t see much improvement, but hopefully it comes quickly.”

Brown’s inflammation hasn’t subsided much at all, according to the person familiar with Brown’s condition. “There’s a lot of stuff going on in there,” they said.
