Redskins Injury Update: Kerrigan Has Concussion Symptoms
UPDATE: Ryan Kerrigan has passed concussion tests administered Tuesday and will be available this weekend in Green Bay.
LANDOVER, Md. (CBSDC) — Washington Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan left Monday’s 33-27 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles with concussion-like symptoms and did not return.
He exited the game late in the fourth quarter and was taken to the locker room for further evaluation. Kerrigan was not made available to the media following the game under NFL regulations surrounding players with suspected head injuries, but was seen upright and talking after the game.
An update was not immediately made available for the linebacker.
In other Redskins injury news, rookie returner Chris Thompson exited the game with a right ankle injury in the second half, but is expected to be OK according to head coach Mike Shanahan. Santana Moss handled return duties in Thompson’s absence.
Wide receiver Pierre Garçon left the game late in the fourth quarter with cramps. He too is expected to be OK according to Shanahan.
“Pierre was running a lot of routes there in that two-minute offense,” Shanahan said. “He was going as hard as he could and he wanted to go back out there. I just took him out on the last series. I could see he was going to pull something.”
A few lineman also left the game briefly due to cramping, which was too be expected due to the warm weather, the coach said.
