Adam Carriker expected to begin camp on the PUP list

According to The Washington Times, Redskins defensive end Adam Carriker will start out training camp on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list as he continues to rehab from a ruptured right quadriceps tendon.

There’s even a chance Carriker may miss some regular season games after undergoing a second surgery this past winter.

“At this point, we’re really working on getting the range of motion back in the knee,” Carriker said on The Chris Russell Show. “Your knee is supposed to bend at, like, 130-140 degrees. Typically right now, it doesn’t get there.

“My strength within the motion I have is pretty good. But we got to get more motion out of it just to be able to play football, first of all, and then just to be able to live a normal life and do things of that nature. So we get that range of motion back, shoot, I should be able to go. It’s just it might take a while to get that.”

Carriker admitted that he suffered a setback back around New Year’s.

“I’m not sure what we want to disclose at this point,” Carriker said on the radio. “It was a setback, clearly, and obviously led to another surgery. Obviously it set me back. I wasn’t able to do any of the offseason activities and be on the field. It was just a setback and we’ll leave it at that for right now. Maybe we’ll elaborate at a later date.”
