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.

Redskins' Ryan Anderson: Questionable for Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Anderson was able to return from the hamstring injury and play Week 16 at Tennessee, but remained on the injury report as a limited participant. The 24-year-old hasn't seen more than 22 defensive snaps this season, so his absence is unlikely to be a major factor should he not suit up.
