  • Ryan Anderson: Works out for Tennessee

    The Titans brought in Anderson (suspension) for a tryout Monday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports. Anderson was suspended for the first six games of last season for a violation of the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances. However, the 255-pound linebacker was released by the Giants ahead of the 2021 regular season, and he did not play again until signing with the Steelers this past October. Anderson then recorded one tackle while playing 27 defensive snaps over five games with Pittsburgh, though he was eventually let go in early November.

  • Giants' Ryan Anderson: Lands on non-football injury list

    Anderson was placed on the non-football injury list with a back injury Sunday. The severity of Anderson's injury isn't yet clear, but he'll be unavailable to begin camp.

  • Giants' Ryan Anderson: Signing with Big Blue

    Anderson (knee) is signing a one-year contract with the Giants, Field Yates of ESPN reports. The deal includes a $137,500 signing bonus and qualifies for the veteran salary benefit, so Anderson should have the inside track for a spot on the Week 1 roster. A 2017 second-round pick, he started just four of his 52 regular-season games in Washington, recording 86 tackles, 15 QB hits and six sacks. Anderson flashed some potential in 2019 with five forced fumbles and four sacks, but between a knee injury and tougher competition for playing time, he played just 145 defensive snaps in nine games in 2020. He missed the final seven weeks of the season, but there hasn't been any report of him needing surgery.

  • Redskins' Ryan Anderson: Forces five fumbles in '19

    Anderson managed 44 tackles (30 solo), four sacks and one defended pass across 16 games in 2019. He also forced five fumbles, two of which he recovered. Anderson hadn't forced a single fumble in his first two NFL seasons, so his five-count 2019 campaign will likely prove an outlier. Still, his impressive production in an expanded role could land the 2017 second-round pick a similar role for 2020.

  • Redskins' Ryan Anderson: Sheds injury label

    Anderson (shoulder) will play Sunday against the Eagles. Anderson was forced out of last week's game due to a stinger, but the linebacker should be good to go for Sunday. With Ryan Kerrigan (calf) on injured reserve, Anderson and Montez Sweat are expected to see the majority of the playing time at left outside linebacker.

  • Redskins' Ryan Anderson: Small role in rookie season

    Anderson (knee) recorded 15 tackles over 14 games in 2017. Anderson joined a crowded linebacking corps in Washington after being taken in the second round of the 2017 draft and consequently didn't see much playing time during his rookie season. However, the Redskins have a host of linebackers headed for free agency at the end of the league year -- including starters Zach Brown (knee) and Mason Foster (shoulder), but also Trent Murphy, Junior Galette and Will Compton. Depending on who the team ultimately re-signs this offseason, it's possible Anderson could be in store for a more significant role in 2018. He'll first need to recover from a knee injury that Scott Allen of the Washington Post classified as a damaged patella tendon, though there hasn't been any reported concern that the Alabama product is in danger of missing the start of April's offseason training program.

  • Redskins' Ryan Anderson: Questionable for Week 1

    Anderson (neck) was limited in practice this week and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports. Anderson has been dealing with the stinger since early August and finally participated in practice this week, albeit in a limited fashion. The 23-year-old's status for Sunday is uncertain, but even if he suits up, he's expected to see limited snaps due to his slotting on the depth chart.

  • Redskins' Ryan Anderson: Did not play Sunday

    Anderson (neck) did not play in Sunday's preseason tilt with the Bengals due to a stinger issue, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Anderson has missed time throughout training camp and the preseason due to the neck injury. Gruden didn't elaborate on the severity of the stinger, but the team may opt to play it safe and hold the second-round pick out of Thursday's preseason finale.
