Description: Redskins OLB Brian Orakpo doesn't sound optimistic about his chances to play Sunday.
Insight: Orakpo is an athletic defender that offenses have to account for but the game with the Giants means nothing in the big scheme of things and with free agency around the corner he may not want to chance it at less than 100 percent.

Description: Redskins OLB Brian Orakpo, who left the game against Detroit with a head injury, has returned to the game.

Description: Redskins OLB Brian Orakpo has left the game against Detroit with a head injury and is questionable to return.
Insight: Orakpo is an athletic defender that offenses have to account for, so this injury will hurt the Redskins' defense which can ill-afford to be short-handed.

Description: Redskins OLB Brian Orakpo is done for the season with a torn left pectoral muscle, according to NFL.com. Orakpo wasn't the only loss suffered by the Redskins defense this weekend, as the team lost DE Adam Carriker as well.
Insight: The loss of two starters in the front seven is going to take a toll on the Washington defense. The two combined for 14.5 sacks last season and teams facing the Redskins should be more successful with both players out of the lineup.

Description: Redskins OLB/DE Brian Orakpo tweeted earlier today, "This year we're not going through all that Albert nonsense again." SOURCE: TWITTER
