Redskins LB Ryan Kerrigan out after early injury vs. Bills

Redskins LB Ryan Kerrigan out after early injury vs. Bills

FEDEX FIELD - Ryan Kerrigan played just one series for the Redskins defense against the Bills before leaving the game with an apparent groin injury, Redskins PR announced.

Throughout training camp, Kerrigan looked to be in great shape, a sharp contrast from the 2015 offseason when he was working back from knee surgery and held out of preseason action. The outside linebacker further suffered last season when he broke a bone in his hand.

It's hard to tell if the Kerrigan injury is serious, or simply a precaution to pull the edge rusher since the game is only a preseason affair. In his very limited action, Kerrigan had a good rush on Bills QB Tyrod Taylor, narrowly missing a sack. 

Last season Kerrigan logged 9.5 sacks in 16 games, and in a five-season career with Washington the former Purdue star has totaled 47.5 sacks. Kerrigan made the Pro Bowl in 2012.

According to the depth chart given to the media, Gilmore, Aaron Williams, Brown, Hughes, and Kyle Williams are starters on defense. McCoy is their top running back and Glenn is the starting left tackle.

The Redskins are expected to play their starters through the first half. Jay Gruden said earlier this week that RB Chris Thompson, WR Jamison Crowder, and DE Chris Baker are unlikely to play. Starting RB Matt Jones also is out with an AC joint sprain he suffered a week ago against the Jets.

With Redskins pursuing new stadium, Dan Snyder named to NFL stadium committee

With Redskins pursuing new stadium, Dan Snyder named to NFL stadium committee

With the Redskins openly in the process of considering new options for a stadium, the NFL named Washington team owner Dan Snyder to the league's Stadium Committee. 

In a statement, the 'Skins said the committee "provides strategic direction to the league and clubs on all stadium matters." The committee is focused on state of the art stadiums and delivering the best fan experience on gamedays. 

Washington's current lease at FedEx Field in Landover, Md., runs through 2026 and team president Bruce Allen has talked about possible new locations for the next stadium. 

Earlier this month, Virginia Governor Terry McAullife told the media that he is working to  bring the Skins to his state. The Skins practice in Loudon County and hold training camp in Richmond. 

Despite McAullife's efforts, the team has said they will talk with officials in Maryland and the District before any decision is finalized. 

Other owners on the stadium committee include Steelers President Art Rooney II and Stephen Jones of the Cowboys. 

Snyder currently sits on six other committees, and is the co-chair of the digital media committee.
