The Washington Redskins came back to win after trailing the Buccaneers 24-0 Sunday, but they lost perhaps their best defensive player.

Outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan, who has 3.5 sacks this season, was ruled out after fracturing his hand in the first half, and his status for future games is up in the air.

After a bye week, Washington, which improved to 3-4 with the win, will return to action Nov. 8 against the Patriots.
