Redskins defensive end Adam Carriker said in June that he expected to start training camp on the PUP list and that looks like a prediction that will come true.
When he might get off that list is the subject of considerably less clarity. Tarik El-Bashir of CSNWashington.com reports that Carriker needs to have another surgery on his right leg and he remains without a timetable for a return to the field.
It’s been a long time in these straits for Carriker. He tore his quadriceps early last season, missed the rest of the year has already had two other surgeries in hopes of improving the situation. When he spoke about his outlook in June, Carriker was still without the necessary range of motion in his leg to even start thinking about a return to practice and this new round of surgery presumably won’t send him skyrocketing to that point all that quickly.
Carriker’s a good bet to remain on PUP into the regular season, missing at least the first six games of the year before he’d be eligible to start playing. Stephen Bowen, Jarvis Jenkins and Kedric Golston will be seeing the majority of the snaps at defensive end for the Redskins until Carriker returns to health.
