Kerrigan To Head Up 10th Annual Leukemia Golf Classic

Yeah, being in the hospital isn’t exactly the most ideal way to spend your holiday season, but for a second straight year, Redskins outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan did his best Santa impression to spread some cheer.

Kerrigan on Tuesday took part in his second-annual “Ryan’s Reindeer Rush,” in which he surprised several patients at Children’s National Health System in Washington, D.C., with an impromptu visit, which was arranged through his Blitz For The Better foundation.

It was awesome being able to go around the various rooms with Kerrigan and see the pure joy in these children’s eyes as they met the fourth-year outside linebacker, who, with three games to go this season, has already established a career high with 11.5 sacks.

But, as Kerrigan told me, as excited as the children were to see him, he was just as ecstatic to have the opportunity to make a few new friends on Tuesday.

In fact, in a bit of good timing, we had the chance to meet 3-year-old Enrique, whose family are huge Redskins fans, and his father just happened to be in his Redskins shirt when Kerrigan walked in. He had one message for Kerrigan as he left the room Tuesday: “Beat the Cowboys:”

Kudos to Kerrigan, the Blitz For The Better foundation and Children’s National for everything they do to help these kids.

Sunday Recap: Pierre Garçon and Ryan Kerrigan Return To Indianapolis

Posted by Jake Kring-Schreifels on December 2, 2014 – 10:31 am


–The Redskins are in Indianpolis
–Garcon, Kerrigan Ready For Hoosier Homecomings

Last Sunday’s trip to Indianapolis was particularly resonant for Washington Redskins receiver Pierre Garçon and linebacker Ryan Kerrigan.

Garçon, who was drafted by the Colts in 2008 and played four seasons there, made his first trip back to Indy as an opposing player. While many of his former teammates from that time have moved on, he carved out a few minutes to connect with a few players, including Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, before the game.

“A lot of great memories in Indy,” Garçon told Redskins.com last week. “Won a lot of games in Indy, grew up in Indy – good times. Great times.”

Kerrigan never played for the Colts but the trip was still a homecoming. After growing up in Muncie, Ind. he graduated from Purdue University. He was able to meet with friends and family before the game and made sure they were rooting for the Redskins.

“I made it pretty clear: either you’re with me or you’re against me,” Kerrigan said with a smile. “If I’m getting you tickets, you’re not going to be cheering for both the Colts and Kerrigan — you’re going to cheer for the Redskins.”

Redskins Talk Thanksgiving Traditions, Plans

–Social Media Recap: 12th Annual Redskins Harvest Feast
–Families Thankful For 12th Annual Redskins Harvest Feast

According to Washington Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan, the pressure is on quarterback Kirk Cousins to host a successful Thanksgiving dinner. According to Cousins, the pressure will mostly be on his wife who is in charge of cooking the turkey.

“I just got married this summer so I guess this will be the first time we’re starting our own tradition together as a married couple,” said Cousins. “Knowing my wife, in only the four or five months that we’ve been married, she’s lived up to the hype. She’s done a really good job cooking. So no doubt, Thanksgiving for her is game day.”

Along with Kerrigan, Cousins will host several other teammates and their wives as well as his own family members.

He’ll try to find some time to peek in on some games, too.

“It should be fun hosting a few of the other guys on the team, have some fun and fellowship and watch some football,” said Cousins. “It’s the 5 “F’s” in Thanksgiving that I love: football, family/friends, fun, good food, and a four-day weekend so I’m looking forward to that.”

Running back Roy Helu Jr. will also be with his wife Thursday after the team finishes practice. He’ll go to his sister’s house and eventually celebrate the holiday at his friend’s while unable to be home in California where he grew up.

“You kind of just adapt and make a lot of food,” said Helu, who promises to watch a lot of football as well. “We haven’t really started a tradition or anything.”

“I like the leg of the turkey, the dark meat,” he added.  “I want to try a deep-fried turkey because I haven’t tried one before. My pet peeve is cold Thanksgiving food. My favorite dessert is pumpkin pie or pecan pie– I switch in between– and cheesecake.”

Tight end Jordan Reed doesn’t plan to have the television on when he makes the trip to his brother’s home in Baltimore. He’ll be happy to lie around, talk to family and enjoy the macaroni and cheese his mother, the specialty cook, will pass around the table.

Kerrigan meanwhile is looking forward to his aunt’s sweet potato casserole and linebacker Trent Murphy expressed his excitement to try the fried turkey long snapper Nick Sundberg is preparing.

Wide receiver Santana Moss will also be with family Thursday, including his kids, whom he hasn’t seen for a while.

“I’m always thinking about the life that we get to live, that we don’t appreciate much,” he said. “I know some of us do. A lot of us don’t. We all complain, but at the end of the day it could be worse. So you’ve got to appreciate and love up your family.”

Statistical Updates: Redskins-Jaguars

Posted by Andrew Walker on September 17, 2014 – 3:54 pm

The Washington Redskins last Sunday dominated in their 41-10 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars at FedExField. A big part of that attack was the Redskins’ defense, which tied a team record with 10 sacks in the game.

With so many sacks in one game, it can often be confusing at that exact moment for an official scorer to determine who should — and who shouldn’t — be credited with the play. So oftentimes, teams will contact the league and Elias Sports Bureau throughout the next week to clear that up.

Elias then typically meets with the league office to review certain plays.

That’s what happened this week for the Redskins, who got some clarity on a few plays from Elias researchers.

Redskins, Make A Wish Partner Up

Posted by Andrew Walker on May 4, 2014 – 11:28 am

There’s just nothing quite like seeing a child see their dreams come true.

For 5-year-old Addy of Arlington, Va., however, the journey to realizing her ultimate dream didn’t come easy.

In March 2013, Addy was diagnosed with Stage IV cancer, and in the coming weeks and months, this sweet little girl underwent a grueling treatment regimen

Although she could’ve given up to the terrible disease at any time, she didn’t. Instead, she remained strong, gaining inspiration from musicians like Katy Perry and Taylor Swift.

Over that time, Addy developed a passion for the music and that glamorous lifestyle. So when she had surgery to remove her tumor and Addy’s doctor told her parents that she would be eligible for the Make A Wish program, Addy immediately knew what she wanted:

To be a pop star.

Thanks to Make A Wish and the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation — which funded the endeavor — Addy’s dream came true Saturday evening.

Redskins “Give Local” At Weekend Blood Drive

Posted by Stephen Czarda on April 28, 2014 – 4:52 pm


Blood is burgundy for a reason.

On Saturday, Washington Redskins players and coaches, in conjunction with Inova Blood Donor Services, partook in a blood drive at Redskins Park.

Part of Inova’s “Give Local, Save Local” campaign, the blood drive drew citizens of the DMV and beyond looking to support those in need to include head coach Jay Gruden.

“Gave some blood Saturday which was exciting,” Gruden said Monday before Brian Orakpo’s fourth-annual Leukemia Golf Classic at Trump National Golf Club. “Got to see some people and help some people. It’s a great opportunity to help people that desperately need it.”

Here’s Gruden shortly before needle’s first poke:
