Ryan Kerrigan Fantasy Football News 2020

Washington OLB Ryan Kerrigan suffered a concussion in Sunday's win over the Lions. We'll see if he can make it through the protocol in time for next Sunday's upside sack matchup with the Panthers.

Washington OLB Ryan Kerrigan left in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Cowboys with a groin injury. He is questionable to return.

Update: Kerrigan returned to the game -- and finished it with 2 sacks.

Washington ILB Will Compton (knee) is active for today's game against the Bears after missing the Monday night loss to the Panthers. He's OK for your IDP lineup, but we'd rather use teammate ILB Mason Foster without the knee question. Other questionable Washington defenders who are active include OLB Ryan Kerrigan (elbow) and DE Chris Baker (ankle).

Washington will have ILB Keenan Robinson (rib), OLB Ryan Kerrigan (hand), CB Chris Culliver (knee) and Bashaud Breeland (hamstring) available for today's game at New England. All are active despite entering the day questionable. CB DeAngelo Hall remains out, however, with the toe injury he suffered back in Week 3 against the Giants.

Washington ILB Perry Riley (lower leg) is probable for Sunday's game at New England after putting in full practices all week. He has had a recurrent calf issue and not much production, though, so Riley doesn't make for a strong IDP candidate. Fellow ILB Keenan Robinson is questionable with a rib injury. He curiously missed Thursday's practice and put in only a limited Friday workout after practicing in full Wednesday. Don't bother with Robinson in your IDP lineup if you can help it. OLB Ryan Kerrigan is questionable with his repaired hand fracture after putting in limited practices all week. DC Joe Barry indicated via the team website that he believes Kerrigan will play. The team also lists CBs Bashaud Breeland (hamstring), Chris Culliver (knee) and DeAngelo Hall (toe) as questionable. Breeland put in limited practices the past 2 days after missing Wednesday. Culliver sat out Friday after practicing the previous 2 days on a limited basis coming out of the bye. Hall put in limited practices each day but hasn't played since suffering his toe injury back in Week 3 against the Giants. We'll check on all 3 corners Sunday morning.

Washington OLB Ryan Kerrigan left Sunday's game against the Bucs early with a broken hand and won't return. Washington gets a bye in Week 8, so we'll see if Kerrigan's playing with a club after that. His absence should create more playing time for promising rookie OLB Preston Smith.

Washington OLB Ryan Kerrigan had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Tuesday, according to ESPN.com's John Keim. Kerrigan called it "cautionary" and said that the knee needed to be cleaned up to avoid potential issues later on. Doctors will check the knee next week and determine how long he'll be out. Washington's 1st full-team minicamp is set for June 16-18. We'll see how soon Kerrigan can get back onto the field before determining whether this surgery will alter his outlook for the 2015 IDP rankings. Kerrigan led the team with a career-high 13.5 sacks last season.

Washington picked Stanford OLB Trent Murphy in the 2nd round of the 2014 NFL draft.  A DE in college, Murphy projects to OLB in Washington's 3-4 front.  He'll also be a part-time player until either Brian Orakpo or Ryan Kerrigan leaves town.  Washington retained Orakpo with the franchise tag this offseason.  Kerrigan is signed through 2015 after the team exercised its option year.  Murphy obviously won't make an IDP impact at least until he finds a lineup slot, but his arrival adds needed depth -- especially behind the oft-injured Orakpo.
