Saints Nation: Jammal Brown out longer than expected?

In addition to suffering from a sports hernia, Jammal Brown is apparently suffering a hip condition. According to Times Picayune reporter Jeff Duncan's twitter account, Jammal Brown is now scheduled for surgery on his hip that will keep him out until "at least week 6". The Saints have a bye week in week 5, so the hope is that he could perhaps return after that. Tough break for the offensive line that will now need to rely on Jermon Bushrod for longer than expected at left tackle. Let's hope he's up to the task, but it's definitely a cause for concern. Having an inexperienced left tackle fill in for a pro bowler to cover our franchise's blind side for an extended period is scary. I just hope Bushrod is up to the task.
