Kerrigan will now have to wait to beat Washington’s all-time sack record. The 31-year-old was one sack short of tying Dexter Manley’s record of 91 sacks.
“He’s a consummate pro in every respect,” interim coach Bill Callahan said. “I know he didn’t want to finish this season in this fashion, but it’s in the best interest in his health obviously, to go this route right now.”
Until two weeks ago, Kerrigan had never missed a game in his career. But he suffered a concussion in the Redskins‘ win against the Detroit Lions late last month, causing his streak of 139 consecutive games to be snapped.
