Washington Redskins right tackle Jammal Brown missed a second consecutive day of practice because of a sore left hip, making the chances of his comeback from a second hip surgery since 2009 even more bleak.

Brown remains on the Redskins’ Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list, where he has been since the start of training camp. He re-injured the same hip in which he suffered a torn labrum in 2009, and missed all of that year. Brown has been hampered by the same hip off and on the last two years. He suffered the latest injury while running sprints on the eve of training camp, and later in the preseason had surgery to repair a torn tendon.

Brown was cleared last week to begin practicing, and went through his first session on Monday. The Redskins had a 14-day window from that point to evaluate him and decide whether or not to activate him to the 53-man roster, or to put him on season-ending injured reserve.

Brown would have practiced in pads for the first time on Thursday, but he was unable to do so. He remained sidelined Friday.

“Same thing as yesterday,” Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said. “Still sore. We’ll evaluate that next week. … The hip was sore – both the left and right side. There was a little bit of a setback. We’ve got another week to get a chance to look at him. Hopefully, he gets better.”

Full participants in Friday’s practice, but probable for Sunday’s game were cornerbacks DeAngelo Hall (groin) and Josh Wilson (shoulder), receiver Santana Moss (head), tackle Trent Williams (ankle), punter Sav Rocca (knee) and long-snapper Nick Sundberg (forearm).
