Adam Carriker expects to start camp on PUP list

The Redskins haven’t seen defensive end Adam Carriker on the field since he ruptured his right quadriceps in the second week of the 2012 season and the wait for his return looks like it will extend into training camp.

Carriker expects to begin training camp on the physically unable to perform list after suffering a setback in his recovery that required a second surgery early in the offseason. He hasn’t been able to practice with his teammates at all this spring as he works to get back into football shape and said that he doesn’t have enough range of motion in his leg to even think about getting back on the field right now.

“As we progress, the running, the strengthening, the adding more weights, the increasing the volume of running, getting the explosion back, I’ll know how it feels then,” Carriker said on ESPN 980, via Rich Campbell of the Washington Times. “I’ll know what, kind of, to expect. Then when I start practicing, obviously we’re going to start off slow because it has been a long time since I’ve even donned pads and a helmet, which is just crazy to me.”

Stephen Bowen is slated to start at one defensive end spot with Jarvis Jenkins the likeliest choice on the other side after he replaced Carriker in the starting lineup last season. The Redskins have also lost Doug Worthington for the season with a biceps injury, so they’re likely going to be a bit thinner than they’d like when camp opens up this summer.
