Skins Insider: Ryan Kerrigan

05.28.2015 / Blog Posts Health and Wellness Redskins

Just before being named No. 78 on the NFL’s Top 100 List, linebacker Ryan Kerrigan underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Tuesday, May 19th.

Kerrigan is coming off of a career-high season with 13.5 sacks and five forced fumbles. He will enter the 2015 season with a total of 38 sacks moving him up in the history books with Brian Orakpo, Monte Coleman and Charles Mann.

“I’m proud to be able to represent the Redskins on the countdown this year,” Kerrigan said to Redskins.com.

After being drafted in 2011 from Purdue, 16th overall, he has never missed a single game.

So what exactly is knee arthroscopic surgery?

According to AAOS.org, Arthroscopy is a common surgical procedure in which a joint (arthro-) is viewed (-scopy) using a small camera. Arthroscopy gives doctors a clear view of the inside of the knee. This helps them diagnose and treat knee problems.

The procedure typically lasts from 30 minutes to over an hour. Depending on the damage, a patient typically can go home within 1-2 hours following the surgery.

In the press conference following the first day of OTAs, Head Coach Jay Gruden commented on Kerrigan's knee scop surgey last week, stating "Ryan's going to be fine." 

Can't wait to see him back on the field!
