Outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan has received credit for half of a sack that incorrectly was not attributed to him on the final play of Sundayâ€™s win over the Chicago Bears.
With 15 seconds left in the game, Kerrigan and nose tackle Barry Cofield combined to sack Bears quarterback Josh McCown for a seven-yard loss at the Chicago 49-yard line. Kerrigan came in from McCownâ€™s right and grabbed him around his hips, and Cofield came up the middle and then wrapped up the quarterback up high and drove him to the ground.
Originally, the gameâ€™s statistic keepers credited a full sack to Cofield.
But Redskins coaches submitted the play to the league for review and by Wednesday evening, the correction had been made on NFL.com. Kerrigan now has a team-high 5.5 sacks through six games. That total ranks 11th in the NFL. Cofield now has 2.5 sacks.
