Kerrigan (hand) will undergo surgery to repair a broken bone suffered Sunday against the Buccaneers, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Kerrigan's surgery, while unfortunate, at least coincides with the Redskins' Week 8 bye. As a result, he'll have a built-in week to recover, and since his injury can be guarded with a club, Kerrigan actually might not miss any game action. With that in mind, his status should be monitored more closely once the Redskins reconvene next week ahead of their Week 9 contest against the Patriots.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Often, defensive players will encase this type of injury in a club, but the extent of Kerrigan's fracture will likely determine when he next takes the field. Before he departed, he tallied one solo tackle, bringing his season-long line to 16 tackles (12 solo), 3.5 sacks, and one forced fumble.

Kerrigan totaled two tackles (one solo) and was credited with half a sack in Sunday's 17-10 loss to the Dolphins.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Kerrigan's relatively quiet day can likely be blamed on the rust he accumulated while being held out the entire preseason for precautionary reasons after offseason knee surgery. With Sunday's start, the ultra-durable fifth-year pro preserved his streak of never having missed a game in his career. Although he may take a few games to round into shape, Kerrigan is still expected to build on the 13.5 sack breakout campaign he put together in 2014.

Washington Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan agreed to a five-year, $57.5 million contract extension Wednesday, according to NFL.com. Kerrigan, who has started all 64 games during his four-year NFL career, registered 64 tackles, a career-high 13.5 sacks and an NFL-high five forced fumbles last season. "To get to a moment like this where you get a chance to play out the rest of your NFL career with the team that drafted you, the team that you love, the city that you love, it hasn't really hit me yet, but it's an awesome feeling," Kerrigan said Wednesday. "Now it's my job to go reward the Redskins for the faith they put in me by playing well this year, and for the rest of my career." The 26-year-old was set to make roughly $7 million this season before the new deal begins, which will make him the third highest-paid linebacker in the league behind Justin Houston and Clay Matthews.
