Linebacker Ryan Kerrigan briefly left Monday night’s game with a sprained left elbow. Meanwhile, fellow linebacker Houston Bates injured his left knee, and cornerbacks Quinton Dunbar and Greg Toler both suffered concussions, making for a fairly heavy list of injuries in the Redskins’ loss to the Panthers.

Kerrigan injured his elbow in the second half, but he returned on the next series, wearing a brace on his left arm. Bates injured his knee early in the game and shortly after was ruled out for the remainder of the game. Coach Jay Gruden said that the special teams contributor will have an MRI exam on Tuesday.

Dunbar was diagnosed with a concussion after getting knocked out of the game on punt coverage early in the third quarter. Toler replaced him, and then later left the game with what was later diagnosed with a concussion as well.

Kendall Fuller took over as the third cornerback, replacing Toler.
