Question of the Day
c Outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan, the Redskins‘ first-round draft pick, participated in team drills for the first time since the first training camp practice July 29.
Kerrigan bruised a bone in his right knee that morning. He simultaneously took a bad step and was hit, and his knee hyperextended. He missed portions of 14 practices.
“I’m still getting adjusted to the brace, but that will come with time,” he said. “Overall, I felt good, and it felt good to be back out there.”
Kerrigan’s inability to practice was problematic for a couple of reasons. He’s a rookie who must learn the Redskins‘ defensive playbook, and he’s also learning a new position. He played defensive end at Purdue.
He hopes to play Friday against Pittsburgh. “I’ve got to be ready,” he said. “I have no choice.”
c Receiver Malcolm Kelly (right foot) missed his third straight day of practice. Tight end Chris Cooley (left knee) sat out team drills. Receiver Brandon Banks (left knee) fully participated.
