Giants' Ryan Anderson: Lands on non-football injury list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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. The 26-year-old dealt with a knee injury last year and played 145 defensive snaps in nine games with Washington. Once he's cleared to practice, he should compete for a depth role with his new team.

Giants' Ryan Anderson: Signing with Big Blue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Football Team's Ryan Anderson: Shifts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (knee) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.

Anderson already missed the last three games. Now, he won't be eligible to play until a Week 17 matchup against the Eagles. Ryan Kerrigan has handled more work as the primary backup to Chase Young and Montez Sweat, and that rotation figures to remain intact for the time being. If Anderson doesn't return this season, he'll finish with nine tackles over nine games. He'll be a free agent in March.

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

Anderson (knee) is inactive for Monday's game against the Steelers, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.

Anderson will watch from the sidelines for a third straight game despite practicing without limitations for the final two sessions of the week. He'll look to keep that momentum going in order to return to the field next week against the 49ers.

Football Team's Ryan Anderson: Carries questionable tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (knee) is questionable for Monday's game versus the Steelers, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

Anderson appears to be on the right track after logging back-to-back full practices to close out the week. The fourth-year defensive end's role has been heavily diminished on Washington's defense, as he has averaged just 10.5 snaps per game since Week 5.

Football Team's Ryan Anderson: Back from knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (knee) was a full practice participant Friday, Kyle Stackpole of Washington's official site reports.

The 26-year-old missed Week 12 due to the knee injury, but he's back on track this week. Anderson hasn't played more than 15 defensive snaps in a game since Week 4 for Washington.

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.
