Redskins' Ryan Anderson: Forces five fumbles in '19
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson managed 44 tackles (30 solo), four sacks and one defended pass across 16 games in 2019. He also forced five fumbles, two of which he recovered.

Anderson hadn't forced a single fumble in his first two NFL seasons, so his five-count 2019 campaign will likely prove an outlier. Still, his impressive production in an expanded role could land the 2017 second-round pick a similar role for 2020.

Redskins' Ryan Anderson: Practices in full Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (Achilles/shoulder) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

Anderson wasn't able to practice Wednesday, but he now looks back to full health. He's on track to play his usual starting role in Washington's linebacker corps Week 17 against the Cowboys.

Redskins' Ryan Anderson: No-go on estimated report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (Achilles/shoulder) was a non-participant on Wednesday's practice estimation, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

Anderson appears to have emerged from Week 16's loss to the Giants nursing two injuries. He'll likely need to upgrade his level of activity in practice Thursday or Friday to have any chance of suiting up against Dallas on Sunday.

Redskins' Ryan Anderson: Sheds injury label
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (shoulder) will play Sunday against the Eagles.

Anderson was forced out of last week's game due to a stinger, but the linebacker should be good to go for Sunday. With Ryan Kerrigan (calf) on injured reserve, Anderson and Montez Sweat are expected to see the majority of the playing time at left outside linebacker.

Redskins' Ryan Anderson: Picks up injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (stinger) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Packers.

Anderson was managing a shoulder injury heading into the game, but it's unclear if he aggravated the injury. He joins Ryan Kerrigan (calf) as injured linebackers in the game. Montez Sweat and Nate Orchard stand to receive the bulk of snaps at outside linebacker.

Redskins' Ryan Anderson: Will go Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (shoulder) has no injury designation for Sunday's game against the Packers.

Anderson practiced on a limited basis early in the week before turning in a full one Friday. He'll likely see his usual complement of snaps against Green Bay.

Redskins' Ryan Anderson: Ejected Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson was kicked out of Sunday's game against the Panthers for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Greg Olsen, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports.

Anderson exits the game late in the third quarter, and racked up five tackles (one solo) in the game. With fellow outside linebacker Montez Sweat (quadriceps) dealing with injury, the team is incredibly thin at the position for the remainder of the game.

Redskins' Ryan Anderson: Tallies season-high six tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson racked up six tackles (all solo) and one sack in Sunday's 19-16 win over the Lions.

Anderson managed to double his previous season high in tackles while also adding a sack, despite sustaining a minor stinger during the first half of Sunday's contest. He could see additional work in Week 13 against the Panthers if Ryan Kerrigan (concussion) is held out.

Redskins' Ryan Anderson: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (stinger) will return to Sunday's game against the Lions.

Anderson exited the contest in the first half and was checked out during halftime. The third-year linebacker was deemed good to go, and he'll continue rotating in behind starters Montez Sweat and Ryan Kerrigan.

Redskins' Ryan Anderson: Exits with stinger
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (stinger) was forced out of Sunday's game against the Lions, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

Anderson left the game in the first half. The third-year pro lost his starting job to rookie Montez Sweat, but he normally still logs a respectable snap count. If Anderson's unable to return, Carroll Phillips will be the main reserve outside linebacker behind Sweat and Ryan Kerrigan.

Redskins' Ryan Anderson: Gets a challenge for starting job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson will compete with first-round pick Montez Sweat for snaps at outside linebacker, Kyle Stackpole of the Redskins' official website reports.

Anderson was headed for a starting job after the Packers signed Preston Smith away from Washington, but the 24-year-old now faces competition from a freak athlete who ran a 4.41 40-yard dash at 260 pounds. A decent prospect in his own right, Anderson has managed just 32 tackles (18 solo) and two sacks through two NFL seasons, logging 356 snaps on defense and 308 on special teams. The 2017 second-round pick may find that his experience isn't enough to hold off a vastly superior athlete.

Redskins' Ryan Anderson: Ticketed for starting job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson is expected to join the starting lineup after Preston Smith signed with Green Bay, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

A 2017 second-round pick, Anderson spent his first two NFL seasons providing depth behind 16-game starters Smith and Ryan Kerrigan. The 24-year-old has just 32 tackles (18 solo) and two sacks across 356 snaps on defense and 308 on special teams, but he did have 8.5 sacks his senior season at Alabama. The Redskins would be wise to bring in some competition for playing time.

Redskins' Ryan Anderson: Doesn't get many snaps in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (hamstring) finished the 2018 season with 18 tackles (seven solo) and two sacks in 13 games.

Ryan Kerrigan and Preston Smith dominated playing time at outside linebacker in Washington's 3-4 scheme, leaving mere scraps for the likes of Anderson (163 defensive snaps) and Pernell McPhee (203). Selected in the second round of the 2017 draft, Anderson could have a much larger role in 2019 if the Redskins aren't able to re-sign Smith.

Redskins' Ryan Anderson: Inactive Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's season finale against the Eagles, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

Anderson battled through the hamstring injury last week at Tennessee but won't be available for Week 17. Pernell McPhee remains to serve as a reserve outside linebacker for the Redskins Sunday.

December 28, 2018 04:00 PM
Redskins' Ryan Anderson: Questionable for Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (hamstring) is quesitonable for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

Anderson was able to return from the hamstring injury and play Week 16 at Tennessee, but remained on the injury report as a limited participant. The 24-year-old hasn't seen more than 22 defensive snaps this season, so his absence is unlikely to be a major factor should he not suit up.

December 22, 2018 05:24 PM
Redskins' Ryan Anderson: Set for Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (hamstring) is active for Saturday's game against the Titans.

Anderson will return from the hamstring issue that sidelined him the previous two games. The 24-year-old has topped 20 defensive snaps only once this season and should continue in a rotational role at outside linebacker versus Tennessee.

December 14, 2018 03:12 PM
Redskins' Ryan Anderson: Will not play Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's matchup with the Jaguars, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

Anderson missed last week's game against the Giants with this injury as well. The Alabama product sustained the injury Week 13 against the Eagles. If any player is going to get more work in Anderson's absence, it's likely fellow outside linebacker Pernell McPhee.

December 8, 2018 04:52 PM
Redskins' Ryan Anderson: Ruled out for Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (hamstring) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Anderson suffered a hamstring injury during Monday's loss to the Eagles, and he will sit out Sunday's divisional tilt against the Giants as a result. The second-year linebacker will work to get healthy in time for Washington's matchup against the Jaguars in Week 15.

December 3, 2018 09:28 PM
Redskins' Ryan Anderson: Questionable to return Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson is questionable to return to Monday's game against the Eagles with a hamstring injury.

Anderson exited the game in the second quarter. Josh Harvey-Clemons and Zach Vigil could see additional work as long as Anderson is out.

November 4, 2018 12:12 PM
Redskins' Ryan Anderson: Will play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's matchup against the Falcons, Kareem Copeland of the Washington Post reports.

Anderson will not be sidelined Sunday after suffering a minor knee injury during the Redskins' Week 8 win over the Giants, but he's slated to serve primarily on special teams.
