Ryan Kerrigan to Have Arthroscopic Surgery on his Left Knee
- Updated: January 1, 2014
Washington Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left knee next week to repair a torn lateral meniscus he suffered in the Washington Redskins Week three loss to the Detroit Lions.
The outside linebacker said the recovery from the surgery will be just two to four weeks.
I wasn’t as explosive off it. It’s not as flexible. It’s constantly getting swollen and pounded on every day at practice, and then in the game – it’s like it never healed. This is the type of injury where rest really helps, and when you’re in the middle of a football season, you don’t get that, especially when it happens in Week 3. I wouldn’t say that it affected me a great deal, but I mean, it definitely wasn’t 100 percent.
Kerrigan said he had to get fluid drained from the knee a few times during the season but never thought of having surgery to repair the tear during the year.
Kerrigan had five sacks in his first four games but finished with just 8.5 this season, including two in his final three games, to tie a career high set last season. He also forced four fumbles and finished with 66 tackles.
