Shanahan: Jammal Brown ‘wasn’t able to go’

Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan said Jammal Brown’s right and left hips remained sore and he wasn’t able to play, so he was left on the physically unable to perform list, ending his quest to come back this season.

“He gave it his all, but wasn’t able to go,” Shanahan said.

 Brown had been trying to come back from preseason surgery to repair a torn tendon in his left hip — the same in which he suffered a torn labrum in 2009 and required season-ending to repair.

Brown has three years remaining on his contract (five years, $20.25 million signed last year), but Shanahan said the team would allow some time to pass to discuss his future.

Shanahan said Brown, who has been training at Redskins Park since last year,  will be “getting some time away” right now.

Linebacker London Fletcher (ankle) and tackle Trent Williams (thigh/ankle) did not practice on Wednesday and remain day to day.

Wide receiver Pierre Garcon (toe) practiced fully.
