The Redskins are are hoping that linebacker Ryan Kerrigan will be available on Sunday..
Kerrigan was forced to sit out of the 29-21 win over the Carolina Panthers in Week 13 while dealing with a concussion. Coach Bill Callahan announced that he has cleared the NFL’s concussion protocol:
Kerrigan’s absence had left a rather notable void on the edge last week. They will need all the help they can get if they hope to pull off an upset over Green Bay.
Kerrigan had his impressive streak of 139 consecutive games played snapped due to the concussion he had suffered versus the Detroit Lions prior to last week. It was the first game that he has missed since being taken in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft. Fortunately, he will now have a chance to get right back onto the field after one game.
Kerrigan had been in the midst of an underwhelming 2019 campaign before he was finally able kick things up a notch with 2.5 sacks in two games prior to the injury. He is now hoping to pick up where he left off against this talented Packers’ offense in Week 14.
