Redskins Expect To Start Tyler Polumbus At Right Tackle
Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan said he expects to enter the season with Tyler Polumbus as his starting right tackle, and that he doesn’t foresee the team making any moves to find a replacement for Jammal Brown via trade or free agency.
Brown was projected to enter his third straight season as Washington’s starting right tackle, but on the eve of training camp, he re-injured his surgically repaired right hip — which has hobbled him in each of the last two seasons. Brown last Thursday had surgery to repair what turned out to be a torn ligament in the hip and on Monday was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list for the regular season. That means that the earliest that he would be available to the team would be after Week 6, although the team has until Week 10 to evaluate him and decide whether to activate him, place him on injured reserve or cut him.
Polumbus, who signed as a free agent last November and went on to start four games, splitting time at left guard and right tackle, has worked as the first-team right tackle since Brown’s injury.
