Washington Redskins place Adam Carriker on the PUP list

The Washington Redskins have placed defensive end Adam Carriker on the PUP list.

Carriker, who missed only one game in his first four NFL seasons (two with the St. Lous Rams and two with the Redskins),  played in just two games, recording only one tackle for the Redskins last season. Carriker tore the quadriceps tendon near his knee in week two against the Rams last season.

On July 24, Tarik El-Bashir of CSN Washington reported Carriker would be placed on the preseason PUP list and would need another surgery on his right leg.

On Tuesday the Redskins officially placed Carriker on the reserve/PUP list, meaning he will miss at least the first six games of the season, although he will likely need more time to rehab.  Last month, the timetable for Carriker’s return was “four to five months.”

The Redskins obviously hope Carriker can return before the seasons ends.

In other Redskins news, the team has completed their first round of cuts. They released veteran tackle Jeremy Trueblood, waived linebacker Roddrick Muckelroy and cornerback Ryan Mouton with injury designations and dumped offensive lineman Jacolby Ashworth with an injury settlement.
