We already knew that Ryan Kerrigan will not be playing in the Pro Bowl a week from Sunday.
Now we know why.
The Redskins outside linebacker told ESPN that he had a surgical procedure to “clean up” some issues with his left elbow.
He injured the elbow in a Week 15 game against the Panthers and he wore a brace on it the remaining two games of the season.
Kerrigan was hoping that rest and rehab would clear up the injury but after a couple of weeks the decision was made to go through with the procedure.
The estimated recovery time is 6-8 weeks, a timetable that would have him ready for full work in plenty of time for that start of offseason workouts in mid-April.
