Last week against the St. Louis Rams, Kerrigan recorded two sacks to reach 36 career sacks, sixth-most in team history. With four more sacks this season, Kerrigan —a veteran of 61 NFL games — can become the second-fastest member of the Redskins to record 40 career sacks, trailing only the franchise's all-time sacks leader, Dexter Manley, who surpassed 40 career sacks with Washington in only 49 games once sacks became an official stat in 1982.
