Redskins OLB Ryan Kerrigan underwent elbow surgery after the season.
The procedure cleaned up "loose bodies" in Kerrigan's left elbow, which he sprained in Week 4 and aggravated later on. As fellow OLB Preston Smith turned in a somewhat disappointing sophomore campaign, Kerrigan was the Redskins' only threatening pass rusher in 2016 while playing through the injury. Kerrigan finished with 11 sacks and has at least 7.5 sacks in all six of his NFL seasons. Jan 20 - 1:22 PM

Redskins OLB Ryan Kerrigan will decide how many snaps he plays Week 1.

Kerrigan missed most of the offseason program after having knee surgery in the spring and did not play a snap this preseason. When asked if Kerrigan would be limited Week 1, coach Jay Gruden said, "He’s the type of guy that’s really on his own pitch count. You’re tired you get yourself out. If you’re not tired, you stay your butt in there." With Junior Galette (Achilles) done for the year, Kerrigan will be the primary pass-rushing force for Washington.
