Ryan Kerrigan left the game late for Washington and is being checked for a concussion.

Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan left Monday Night's game against Philadelphia and was being checked for a possible concussion, according to Mike Jones of the Washington Post.

Kerrigan left the game late in the fourth quarter. According to the team, he was taken into the locker room for further evaluation. His return was initially listed as questionable, but he did not re-enter the game. The team said head coach Mike Shanahan will have an update on Kerrigan's condition during his postgame press conference.

Although the severity of the injury is still unknown, losing Kerrigan for any length of time would be a major loss for Washington. Entering his third season, Kerrigan has been a consistent playmaker for Washington and is poised for a breakout season. He made the play of the game early on, jumping up to deflect a pass which was eventually ruled a backwards pass and resulted in a defensive touchdown for Washington.
