Carriker will likely be placed on IR for the 2nd straight year The horrible news came out a few days ago that Washington Redskins left defensive end Adam Carriker will miss 4 or 5 months with a third surgery within 10 months on his bothersome right quadriceps that he tore week two last year versus the St Louis Rams. I have to think that this will mean Carriker will be put on injured reserved for the second year in a row. I have to be honest here, this puts Adam Carriker’s future with the Washington Redskins in doubt. I hope I’m wrong, but the Redskins might come to the realization that they need to invest in another draft pick at the defensive end position in the 2014 NFL Draft. The good news is that the Redskins brought in talent this off-season at the defensive end position and have talent returning off of last years division winning team. Now that it looks like Carriker will not be able to suit up for the 2013 Washington Redskins the depth chart goes as follows: RDE -Stephen Bowen -Kendric Golston LDE -Jarvis Jenkins Behind these three we have Chris Baker who is listed as a nose tackle, but has played defensive end at Hampton University. He also worked some at nose tackle for us last year. Then, we brought in two former second round picks. The Redskins signed Phillip Merling, who was a 2008 second round pick of the Miami Dolphins and Ron Brace who was a 2009 second round pick of the New England Patriots. Both players were top 40 draft picks, so they have the talent to contribute to the Redskins defensive line rotation. The question is, do they have the work ethic? In their previous stops in Miami and New England neither player lived up to their pre-draft measurables and what kind of players scouts thought they would be. The Redskins do have some talent that can help step in to fill the void Carriker will leave, but this is certainly a blow to the defensive line.
