Report: Ryan Kerrigan to miss start of OTAs


Washington Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan will reportedly miss at least a portion of OTAs due to injury.

CSN Washington's Tarik El-Bashir reported Wednesday that Kerrigan underwent arthroscopic knee surgery, per sources.

It's unclear how long Kerrigan will miss after undergoing the procedure, but according to El-Bashir it's not considered serious and the two-time Pro Bowl selection shouldn't miss much offseason work.

The team recently opened contract negotiations with Kerrigan, who is entering the final year of his rookie deal.

The 26-year-old has never missed a game in his four-year career and set a career-high in sacks last year with 13.5. The Redskins' best defensive player in 2014 also finished behind only Justin Houston in quarterback hurries among 3-4 outside linebackers last season with 51, according to Pro Football Focus.

The Redskins open the first of three OTA sessions next week. Mandatory minicamp is slated to start June 16.
