Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan will not play when the Redskins take on the Ravens in Baltimore tomorrow night.
Coach Jay Gruden said earlier this week that he was unsure if Kerrigan would play in the “dress rehearsal” preseason game or if he would sit out for the third straight game. But today at a walkthrough at Joint Andrews Base Gruden said that Kerrigan will not play.
“He looks good, he feels good, but we're holding him out one more time,” said Gruden.
Earlier in the week indications were that rookie wide receiver and punt returner Jamison Crowder would make his debut for the Redskins after missing the first two games with a hamstring strain. But today Gruden was not so sure.
“We’re going to check him at game time,” Gruden said. They will make a decision then. Crowder had a good week of practice but Gruden said that his hamstring felt “a little fatigued” after one practice so they will evaluate it again tomorrow night.
Another player who will be a game time decision is cornerback Bashaud Breeland. He suffered a knee injury early in training camp but he has made what Gruden called a remarkable recovery. The second-year player seems to be a long shot to suit up tomorrow but Gruden was confident that he would be able to play in the fourth and final preseason game next Thursday against the Jaguars.
But there was good news for another cornerback. Veteran DeAngelo Hall missed last Thursday’s game with a toe injury but he is ready to go for the Ravens, according to Gruden.
