Football Team's Ryan Anderson: Sitting out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (knee) has been ruled out for Thursday's game versus the Cowboys, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

After back-to-back limited sessions to start the week, Anderson downgraded to a non-participant Wednesday and will miss a second straight game. The 26-year-old's role has taken a major hit following the respective emergences of Chase Young and Montez Sweat, as he's averaged fewer than 11 defensive snaps per game since Week 4. He'll aim to return in Week 13 against the Steelers.

Football Team's Ryan Anderson: Unavailable against Cincinnati
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Bengals, Kyle Stackpole of Washington's official site reports.

Anderson hasn't played more than 15 snaps on defense in a game since Week 4, as rookie Chase Young has taken off as expected, while Montez Sweat has impressed on the other side of the defensive line. He'll aim to recover quickly with a Week 12 Thursday night game against the Cowboys up next.

Football Team's Ryan Anderson: Suiting up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (ankle) is active for Sunday's divisional matchup against the Giants.

Anderson has been limited at practice the past few weeks with the ankle issue, so this news isn't a surprise. Now appearing healthy, look for the Alabama product to assume his usual rotational depth role across the defensive line.

Football Team's Ryan Anderson: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (ankle) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Ravens.

Anderson played through a shin issue in Week 3 and it appears he will play through the issue just a week later. Now that the Alabama product is back to full health, Anderson will provide rotational depth along Washington's defensive line.

Football Team's Ryan Anderson: Questionable to face Ravens
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (ankle) is officially questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Kyle Stackpole of Washington's official site reports.

Anderson managed to play through what was labeled a shin issue Week 3, so there's some reason to hope that he could be available against Baltimore on Sunday. When back to full health, Anderson will provide rotational depth along Washington's defensive line.

Football Team's Ryan Anderson: Practices in full Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Anderson was a non-participant Wednesday, but he already appears to have shed his shin injury. The fourth-year defensive end only handles a reserve role on defense, so he's not worth fantasy consideration in IDP formats.

Redskins' Ryan Anderson: Forces five fumbles in '19
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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: Practices in full Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (Achilles/shoulder) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

Anderson wasn't able to practice Wednesday, but he now looks back to full health. He's on track to play his usual starting role in Washington's linebacker corps Week 17 against the Cowboys.

Redskins' Ryan Anderson: No-go on estimated report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (Achilles/shoulder) was a non-participant on Wednesday's practice estimation, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

Anderson appears to have emerged from Week 16's loss to the Giants nursing two injuries. He'll likely need to upgrade his level of activity in practice Thursday or Friday to have any chance of suiting up against Dallas on Sunday.

Redskins' Ryan Anderson: Sheds injury label
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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: Picks up injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (stinger) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Packers.

Anderson was managing a shoulder injury heading into the game, but it's unclear if he aggravated the injury. He joins Ryan Kerrigan (calf) as injured linebackers in the game. Montez Sweat and Nate Orchard stand to receive the bulk of snaps at outside linebacker.

Redskins' Ryan Anderson: Will go Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (shoulder) has no injury designation for Sunday's game against the Packers.

Anderson practiced on a limited basis early in the week before turning in a full one Friday. He'll likely see his usual complement of snaps against Green Bay.

Redskins' Ryan Anderson: Ejected Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson was kicked out of Sunday's game against the Panthers for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Greg Olsen, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports.

Anderson exits the game late in the third quarter, and racked up five tackles (one solo) in the game. With fellow outside linebacker Montez Sweat (quadriceps) dealing with injury, the team is incredibly thin at the position for the remainder of the game.

Redskins' Ryan Anderson: Tallies season-high six tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson racked up six tackles (all solo) and one sack in Sunday's 19-16 win over the Lions.

Anderson managed to double his previous season high in tackles while also adding a sack, despite sustaining a minor stinger during the first half of Sunday's contest. He could see additional work in Week 13 against the Panthers if Ryan Kerrigan (concussion) is held out.

Redskins' Ryan Anderson: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (stinger) will return to Sunday's game against the Lions.

Anderson exited the contest in the first half and was checked out during halftime. The third-year linebacker was deemed good to go, and he'll continue rotating in behind starters Montez Sweat and Ryan Kerrigan.

Redskins' Ryan Anderson: Exits with stinger
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (stinger) was forced out of Sunday's game against the Lions, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

Anderson left the game in the first half. The third-year pro lost his starting job to rookie Montez Sweat, but he normally still logs a respectable snap count. If Anderson's unable to return, Carroll Phillips will be the main reserve outside linebacker behind Sweat and Ryan Kerrigan.

Redskins' Ryan Anderson: Gets a challenge for starting job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson will compete with first-round pick Montez Sweat for snaps at outside linebacker, Kyle Stackpole of the Redskins' official website reports.

Anderson was headed for a starting job after the Packers signed Preston Smith away from Washington, but the 24-year-old now faces competition from a freak athlete who ran a 4.41 40-yard dash at 260 pounds. A decent prospect in his own right, Anderson has managed just 32 tackles (18 solo) and two sacks through two NFL seasons, logging 356 snaps on defense and 308 on special teams. The 2017 second-round pick may find that his experience isn't enough to hold off a vastly superior athlete.

Redskins' Ryan Anderson: Ticketed for starting job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson is expected to join the starting lineup after Preston Smith signed with Green Bay, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

A 2017 second-round pick, Anderson spent his first two NFL seasons providing depth behind 16-game starters Smith and Ryan Kerrigan. The 24-year-old has just 32 tackles (18 solo) and two sacks across 356 snaps on defense and 308 on special teams, but he did have 8.5 sacks his senior season at Alabama. The Redskins would be wise to bring in some competition for playing time.

Redskins' Ryan Anderson: Doesn't get many snaps in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (hamstring) finished the 2018 season with 18 tackles (seven solo) and two sacks in 13 games.

Ryan Kerrigan and Preston Smith dominated playing time at outside linebacker in Washington's 3-4 scheme, leaving mere scraps for the likes of Anderson (163 defensive snaps) and Pernell McPhee (203). Selected in the second round of the 2017 draft, Anderson could have a much larger role in 2019 if the Redskins aren't able to re-sign Smith.

Redskins' Ryan Anderson: Inactive Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's season finale against the Eagles, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

Anderson battled through the hamstring injury last week at Tennessee but won't be available for Week 17. Pernell McPhee remains to serve as a reserve outside linebacker for the Redskins Sunday.
