Football Team's Ryan Kerrigan: Upgrades to full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kerrigan (toe) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Rhiannon Walker of The Athletic reports.

Kerrigan didn't practice Wednesday while nursing a toe injury, but he now appears to have put the issue behind him. The veteran defensive end will reprise his usual rotational role in Cleveland on Sunday.

Football Team's Ryan Kerrigan: Misses practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kerrigan is not participating in Wednesday's practice due to a toe injury, Kyle Stackpole of Washington's official site reports.

Kerrigan appears to have picked up a toe injury during Sunday's loss to the Cardinals, in which he played only 30 percent of defensive snaps. With Chase Young having emerged as a starter, Kerrigan will be difficult to trust in IDP formats even if he's able to make a full recovery in time to face the Browns in Week 3.

Football Team's Ryan Kerrigan: Makes most of limited usage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kerrigan recorded two sacks and two QB hits in Sunday's 27-17 win over the Eagles.

The Football Team had a field day against the Eagles' injury-riddled offensive line, and although Kerrigan lost the starting role to No. 2 pick Chase Young, he still made an impact by leading the team in sacks. Kerrigan finished with just 22 defensive snaps but a team high in sacks, compared to Young's 53 snaps and 1.5 sacks. The Football Team has the talent to rotate its defensive ends, but even with Kerrigan's outstanding performance, he's tough to depend on in IDP settings due to the low usage.

Redskins' Ryan Kerrigan: Joined by No. 2 pick at DE
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kerrigan is part of a deep defensive line that now includes No. 2 overall draft pick Chase Young, Kyle Stackpole of the team's official website reports.

Washington is transitioning to a 4-3 scheme under new defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio, and while there's no question the team has enough line talent to make it work, the linebacker spots appear far less formidable. Kerrigan has spent the vast majority of his pro career playing outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense, notching at least 7.5 sacks every season until he dropped to 5.5 last year in 12 games (his first time ever missing a game). With Young and 2019 first-round pick Montez Sweat providing elite athleticism off the edge, Washington might consider splitting Kerrigan's snaps between strongside linebacker and defensive end. Both positions would represent a change for his age-32 season, but it wouldn't be totally foreign for him to play with his hand in the dirt or drop back into coverage. Kerrigan's versatility to handle those various tasks is part of what made him so successful as a 3-4 OLB the past nine years.

Redskins' Ryan Kerrigan: Wants to stay in Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kerrigan has one year left on his contract and relayed that he wants to stick with the Redskins, Craig Hoffman of 106.7 The Fan Washington reports. "I want to be here. I love Washington DC. I love the Redskins. I want to be here," Kerrigan said.

Kerrigan played 12 games this year and recorded 25 tackles and 5.5 sacks. It was a disappointing season in the pass-rush department, as the 31-year-old was a perennial double-digit sack producer enter the season. For Kerrigan to stick around, he'll need to restructure his deal, as he's due to be paid $11.5 million in 2020 but the contract carries no guarantee, per OverTheCap.com. If he's cut before the new league year begins in March, the Redskins save $11.7 million against the cap.

Redskins' Ryan Kerrigan: Shifts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Redskins placed Kerrigan (calf) on injured reserve Friday, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.

Kerrigan is nursing a calf issue suffered Week 14 against the Packers. Interim coach Bill Callahan said Friday that Kerrigan is battling "a serious injury," per Finlay, and that the decision to place him on IR was not impacted by Washington being eliminated from the playoffs. A timetable for the 31-year-old's recovery remains undisclosed.

Redskins' Ryan Kerrigan: Set to miss Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kerrigan (calf) is ruled out for Week 15's matchup against the Eagles and is considered week-to-week moving forward, Rhiannon Walker of The Athletic reports.

Kerrigan had an MRI on Monday to determine the extent of the injury he suffered in this past Sunday's loss to the Packers. The 31-year-old avoided an Achilles injury, as expected, but his calf issue is bad enough to keep him out at least one game. Ryan Anderson (shoulder) is slated to start at outside linebacker if he's healthy; otherwise, Nate Orchard will get the nod. Kerrigan will aim to get healthy for Week 16's game against the Giants.

Redskins' Ryan Kerrigan: Set for MRI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kerrigan will have an MRI on Monday to determine the severity of the calf injury he suffered during Sunday's loss to the Packers, Craig Hoffman of 106.7 The Fan Washington reports.

The team doesn't believe Kerrigan suffered an Achilles injury, which provides some relief to the team's defense. However, the veteran linebacker could miss some time with an unfavorable diagnosis. Nate Orchard and Ryan Anderson (shoulder) are on standby in case Kerrigan misses any time.

Redskins' Ryan Kerrigan: Done for day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kerrigan (calf) is officially out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Packers, Kyle Stackpole of the Redskins' official site reports.

Kerrigan exited the game with the injury and was quickly downgraded to out. Expect the team to have some specifics regarding the injury in the coming days, and in Kerrigan's stead, Nate Orchard and Ryan Anderson are the likely beneficiaries of an uptick in snaps.

Redskins' Ryan Kerrigan: Picks up injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kerrigan (calf) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Packers.

Kerrigan was forced to exit the game in the third quarter, and the specifics of the injury remain unclear. As long as he's sidelined, Nate Orchard and Ryan Anderson are the likely beneficiaries to see an uptick in snaps.

Redskins' Ryan Kerrigan: No longer concussed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kerrigan cleared the league's concussion protocol Wednesday, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

The 31-year-old linebacker misses this past Sunday's win over the Panthers but will be ready to start Week 14's matchup against the Packers. Kerrigan hasn't exceeded four tackles in a game this year, so he's tough to depend on in the fantasy realm.

Redskins' Ryan Kerrigan: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kerrigan (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game at Carolina, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

Kerrigan suffered the concussion during last week's win over the Lions and will miss the first game of his career, ending a streak of 139 straight games. Carroll Phillips figures to see increased work at outside linebacker in Kerrigan's place.

Redskins' Ryan Kerrigan: Nursing concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kerrigan is still in concussion protocol Wednesday, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

After sustaining a concussion during Week 12's win over the Lions, Kerrigan is still on the mend. If he can elevate to limited participation by Friday's practice, the veteran linebacker has a shot to suit up Sunday against the Panthers. Kerrigan has accrued 24 tackles and 4.5 sacks through 11 contests. Ryan Anderson is slated to start if Kerrigan can't go.

Redskins' Ryan Kerrigan: Won't return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kerrigan suffered a concussion and won't return to Sunday's game against the Lions.

Kerrigan put together a strong effort before exiting the contest, tallying four tackles, 0.5 sacks and three quarterback hits. Ryan Anderson and Carroll Phillips figure to rotate in at outside linebacker opposite Montez Sweat for the remainder of the game. Kerrigan's status will be monitored during the practice week leading up to Week 13's matchup against the Panthers.

Redskins' Ryan Kerrigan: Adds two sacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kerrigan had four solo tackles and two sacks in Sunday's 34-17 loss to the Jets.

It was his first multi-sack performance in a down season, with the 31-year-old pass rusher now up to four through 10 games. Kerrigan's career low of 7.5 sacks occurred in his 2011 rookie season, and each subsequent campaign has seen him produce at least 8.5. It doesn't help that Washington's opponents often are able to drain clock with rush attempts after halftime, though a Week 12 matchup with the struggling Lions at least offers some degree of hope for a competitive contest.

Redskins' Ryan Kerrigan: Sack on Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kerrigan recorded two tackles, including one sack, across 50 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys.

Kerrigan got his first sack of the season, reaching Dak Prescott for an eight-yard loss in the second quarter. The veteran only played in 71 percent of the defensive snaps on Sunday, which is a slight drop from his Week 1 total (78 percent).

Redskins' Ryan Kerrigan: Reaches double-digit sacks again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kerrigan finished the 2018 season with 43 tackles (30 solo) and 13 sacks in 16 games.

A 16-game starter in each of his eight NFL seasons, Kerrigan reached double-digit sacks for a third straight year and now has 84.5 in 128 career games. There may be some major changes coming in Washington, but the 30-year-old should be safe in 2019 for the penultimate season of his five-year, $57.5 million extension. Given the current contract standards for top pass rushers, Kerrigan might consider asking for an extension or renegotiation that increases his compensation for 2019.

Redskins' Ryan Kerrigan: Adds another sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kerrigan recorded a sack in Saturday's loss to the Titans.

Kerrigan had a relatively slow day Saturday, with his sack qualifying as his only sack. He's enjoying another great season rushing the passer in 2018, compiling 12.0 sacks through 15 games, leaving him just 1.5 sacks short of tying his career high. He'll look to finish off the regular season strong in Week 17 against the Eagles.

Redskins' Ryan Kerrigan: Continues dominant season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kerrigan recorded six tackles (five solo), two sacks and a forced fumble across 46 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Jaguars.

Kerrigan was elected to his third-straight Pro Bowl on Tuesday night after a dominating performance in Sunday's victory. He now has 11 sacks on the season to go along with 41 tackles. Kerrigan will look to wreak havoc on the Titans this Sunday in a pivotal showdown with major playoff implications.

Redskins' Ryan Kerrigan: Tallies sack in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kerrigan had six tackles (four solo) and a sack in Sunday's 40-16 loss to the Giants.

Though the Redskins didn't do much to stop Eli Manning and the Giants from dropping 40 points on them, Kerrigan was one of the lone bright spots on the squad. He earned his ninth sack of the season, while his six tackles were a season high. He'll hope to keep it going against a lackluster Jaguars' offense on Sunday.
