Former Purdue DE Ryan Kerrigan breaks Washington Football Team record
Former Purdue defensive end Ryan Kerrigan now owns a franchise record in Washington.
In Sunday’s season opener between Washington and Philadelphia, Kerrigan collected two sacks, giving him the new franchise record for career sacks. He had 90 career sacks entering Sunday’s season opener against the Eagles, needing one to tie Dexter Manley’s record at 91.
With his second sack on Sunday, Kerrigan now stands alone at the top in the statistical category. It comes on the first game of his 10th season with Washington.
