Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan said that he will have arthroscopic surgery on his left knee to repair a torn lateral meniscus. A date for the surgery has yet to be determined, Kerrigan said on Thursday.
Kerrigan played with the injury for much of the season after tearing the meniscus in Week 3 against Detroit. Kerrigan recorded five sacks in the first four games of the season and then recorded half a sack in Week 7 and another in Week 8. He then went six straight weeks without a sack before recording a sack in Week 15 and Week 16, respectively. Kerrigan matched a career-high with 8.5 sacks.
Kerrigan is expected to experience a recovery time of only a couple of weeks.
The third-year pro this past season recorded a career-high 66 tackles and forced four fumbles (tying a career-high set his rookie year).
Kerrigan is one of only three defensive starters under contract for next season.
