In first game back from a concussion, Ryan Kerrigan leaves Packers game with calf injury

Ryan Kerrigan is all of a sudden having some injury problems.

The Redskins' pass rusher, who played in 139 games to begin his NFL career, missed his first-ever contest in Week 13 against the Panthers due to a concussion. 

He returned in Week 14 against the Packers, having cleared concussion protocol. However, that return didn't last long.

Kerrigan was forced to exit the second half of Washington's matchup in Green Bay with what was being called a calf injury. No. 91 motioned to the sidelines after a play in the third quarter and had to be helped off. After spending some time in the team's medical tent, he was ruled out.

While Kerrigan's leg issue was initially labeled as a calf concern, it may potentially be worse. The fact that he immediately called for trainers could mean it's something more: 

The 31-year-old is in the second to last season of his contract with the Redskins. He sacked Aaron Rodgers in the first half of Sunday's game to move within one sack of the franchise record.
