Draft Scout Adam Carriker News
08/28/13 - DE Adam Carriker (quad) was placed on reserve/physically unable to perform by the redskins Tuesday.
07/30/13 - DE Adam Carriker recorded 5.5 sacks for the Redskins in 2011, two more than he had produced during his previous three seasons with St. Louis (he was sidelined in 2009 after shoulder surgery) and Washington. However, the left defensive end tore his right quad in Week 2 of 2012, ironically against the Rams, and missed the rest of the season. The 13th overall pick in the 2007 draft was sidelined throughout this spring's practices in the wake of a follow-up surgery. But with the leg still not allowing Carriker range of motion, he had a third operation on July 25, went on the physically unable to perform list and could well miss all of 2013 as he's expected to be out four to five months.
"It just was not producing where (Adam) could get the movement in his legs that would give him a chance to play," coach Mike Shanahan explained. "So he could work with the weights but just didn't have the circulation, didn't have the movement. Hopefully, this surgery will give him the ability to have that type of movement he needs as a defensive lineman to get in that stance and have that explosion."
07/25/13 - DE Adam Carriker, offensive lineman Maurice Hurt and cornerback Josh Wilson on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list to open training camp.
Carriker is recovering from a second surgery on the quad injuy that landed him on injured reserve last September. Wilson is recovering from shoulder surgery.
Players placed on PUP to begin training camp can be activated at any time.
