The surgery was successful and there is optimism that Kerrigan can return for the Redskins' Week 9 game against the New England Patriots after their Week 8 bye. Kerrigan is arguably the team's best defensive player. Despite racking up just 3.5 sacks this season, he has tallied 2 quarterback hits and 19 additional hurries, per Pro Football Focus.
