Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee and will miss some of the team’s offseason practices, Kerrigan said. He added that while no timetable for his recovery has been set, he doesn’t expect it to be lengthy.
A two-time Pro Bowl pick and Washington’s sack leader last season, Kerrigan had the same knee scoped in January 2014 after playing with a partially torn meniscus in 2013.
Kerrigan’s rehabilitation process lasted a few weeks, and he went on to record a career-high 13.5 sacks last season.
Kerrigan, the 16th overall pick of the 2011 draft, is entering the final year of his contract, and he and team officials both have expressed optimism that they can agree to a new deal.
