The Redskins have until Tuesday afternoon to decide whether to activate tackle Jammal Brown or put the veteran on season-ending injured reserve with a chronic hip ailment.
Brown was absent from practice again on Monday – nearly two weeks after suffering a setback in his attempt to return from the injury that's kept him sidelined all season.
Coach Mike Shanahan indicated that the team had made a decision but that it was not ready to make an announcement.
“I haven’t talked to Jammal yet,” Shanahan said. “What I’d like to do is talk to him before I announce anything publicly. I have a feel what direction we’re going, but I’ll share that tomorrow.”
Brown, who has had two hip surgeries since 2009, returned to practice on Nov. 12 and 14, but did not participate in that week’s pads practice. It’s believed Brown has not practiced since.
Here is what you need to know on this Tuesday, May 30, 14 days before the Washington Redskins start their mandatory minicamp on June 13.
Former Redskins defensive lineman Kedric Golston was born on this date in 1983. The former sixth-round pick played in Washington from 2006-2016.

Josh Norman is a man of many talents — at least on the football field, and in the friendliest possible way, he was reminded of that this weekend during a charity basketball game.
Opposite of the defensive nightmare Norman can be for receivers, the New York Knicks' Kyle O’Quinn had a little fun with the Redskins cornerback and the 10-inch height difference they share during the during Bam Bam’s Spring Jam at the Ted Constant Convocation Center in Norfolk, Virginia.
O'Quinn got the ball and went up for a particularly easy dunk as Norman jumped and tried to swat the ball away but his effort was futile.
While this was all in good fun, Norman should probably stick to football.
Former Virginia Tech defenseive back and current Seattle Seahawk Kam Chancellor's foundation is behind the charity game, which also included Redskins' Lynden Trail, Marshawn Lynch, Michael Bennett and Antoine Bethea.
