Jammal Brown, Malcolm Kelly will miss Redskins' preseason opener

Updated 12:12 p.m.

Right tackle Jammal Brown and wide receiver Malcolm Kelly will not play in the Redskins' preseason opener Friday night against Buffalo at FedEx Field. Stephon Heyer will start in Brown's place (via Grant Paulsen of 106.7 The Fan) and Brown is expected to get an injection in his hip, Coach Mike Shanahan said (via Rich Campbell).

Brown missed last season, when he was with the New Orleans Saints, because of hip surgery and has not practiced the last six days because of his hip.

Kelly has been bothered by a hamstring injury.

As for running back Clinton Portis' status after the morning practice, Shanahan said (via Paulsen) that his "groin is tight right now. Didn't pull anything. Hopefully there is no setback and he'll be ready to go tomorrow.''

Jammal Brown sounded great on paper but lets face it, this guy is not going to be able to play. The Skins still have huge o-line issues.
