Brown is eligible to begin practicing from Tuesday to Nov. 6. Once he begins practicing, the Redskins will have 21 days to add him to their active roster. Shanahan hopes Brown will be healthy enough to play the first game after the bye week, which is Nov. 18 at home against Philadelphia.

Brown visited the doctor last week, which fostered optimism.

“He told me I was way ahead of schedule, but now he just wants to be cautious,” Brown said. “I guess he was nervous that I was recovering so fast, but ain’t nothing structurally done, so I can just keep pushing.”

Injury report

Defensive lineman Doug Worthington (calf) did not practice. Cornerback Cedric Griffin (right hamstring) was limited.
