Redskins' LB Kerrigan deemed concussion-free

The SportsXchange

ASHBURN, Va. -- The best news for the Washington Redskins the day after losing the regular-season opener to the Philadelphia Eagles was that Pro Bowl outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan, who was their best player during preseason and set up their only touchdown of the first 44:53 of the opener, doesn't have a concussion.

The Redskins feared Kerrigan suffered a concussion because he experienced symptoms of a head injury during Philadelphia's penultimate series when he sustained a blow to the head that he said was "a little more jarring" than usual.

He reported as much to Washington's medical personnel. The Redskins pulled him from the game.

However, Kerrigan, who was credited with eight tackles and a sack in addition to the forced fumble, passed all concussion tests on Tuesday and is expected to practice on Wednesday.

"I'm feeling good, ready to roll," he said. "(I'm) ready to roll this week."
