Scherff's fifth-year team option was exercised by Washington on Monday, Albert Breer of TheMMQB.com reports.
Scherff has been nothing short of outstanding since joining the Redskins back in 2015. At 26 years old, Scherff already has two pro bowl appearances under his belt and has steadily worked his way towards the top of the food chain in offensive lineman world.
Scherff (knee) is listed as active for Thursday's game against the Cowboys.
Scherff was again on the injury report heading into Week 13, and he will once again suit up. Look for the 25-year-old to resume his usual workload on the offensive line assuming he avoids any setbacks.
Scherff has been a regular on the injury report, but he has managed to play in the previous two contests. Barring any setbacks, the 25-year-old should see his usual workload on the offensive line.
Scherff (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints.
Scherff, who started and played 73 of 75 offensive snaps in the Week 10 loss to the Vikings, was limited in practice all week. There's been no indication of a setback at this point, so the 24-year-old seems more likely than not to suit up Sunday.
