Jammal Brown cleared to practice; David Jones cut; D.J. Johnson promoted

Redskins right tackle Jammal Brown, who has spent the entire season on their physically unable to perform list, has been cleared to practice, the team announced.

Brown, Washington’s starter at right tackle each of the two previous seasons, had been hampered by hip injuries and in August had arthroscopic surgery on his right hip.

The Redskins have 21 days to evaluate Brown before deciding whether to activate him from their PUP list or whether to place him on injured reserve.

Tyler Polumbus has started at right tackle ever since Brown suffered his latest injury on the eve of training camp.

The Redskins also announced they have cut backup cornerback David Jones and have promoted fellow corner D.J. Johnson from the practice squad to the 53-man roster.

Jones, a six-year veteran, played primarily on special teams.

Johnson has appeared in 10 NFL games in his career, playing in three for the New York Giants in 2009 and seven for New York in 2010.

Mike Jones covers the Washington Redskins for The Washington Post. When not writing about a Redskins development of some kind – which is rare – he can be found screaming and cheering at one of his kids’ softball, baseball, soccer or basketball games.
