ASHBURN — Ryan Kerrigan hyperextended his left elbow and was limited to just eight snaps against the Cleveland Browns, but the Washington Redskins’ outside linebacker avoided any significant damage and will be day to day, coach Jay Gruden said on Monday.

Kerrigan was injured on the first play in the second quarter and tried to return for the remainder of the Redskins’ 31-20 win against the Browns, but was in too much pain. Trent Murphy filled in and recorded a sack, his fourth in the last three games.

Strong safety David Bruton and rookie inside linebacker Su’a Cravens remain in the concussion protocol after sustaining concussions against the Browns. Coach Jay Gruden said they both will see an independent doctor this week.

Injuries have piled for the Redskins defense. Cornerback Bashaud Breeland did not play on Sunday after he strained tendons in his right ankle against the New York Giants in Week 3. He was considered week to week, but Gruden on Monday updated the cornerback’s status to day to day. Gruden did the same for left guard Shawn Lauvao, who sprained his right ankle against the Giants.

Gruden said he expects both Breeland and Lauvao for “midweek participation,” but neither practiced last week. Cornerback Dashaun Phillips, who strained his left hamstring against the Giants and did not play last Sunday, is also day to day. Rookie wide receiver Josh Doctson will also continue his “gradual progression of rehab,” according to Gruden. Doctson was a late scratch against the Giants despite playing in the first two games. He missed training camp and the preseason with left Achilles tendon tendinitis and hasn’t practiced since missing the Giants game.
