Description: The Redskins slapped linebacker Brian Orakpo with the franchise tag on Monday. SOURCE: Washington Post
Insight: He was one of six players to receive the tag including fellow Pro Bowlers Jimmy Graham and Greg Hardy. Orakpo (60 tackles, ten sacks in 2013) is hoping to sign a contract extension with Washington sometime this offseason.

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.
 
9/22/2013 1:48:00 PM
Description: Redskins OLB Brian Orakpo, who left the game against Detroit with a head injury, has returned to the game.
Insight: Orakpo is an athletic defender that offenses have to account for and is a welcome sight now that he's back in the lineup for Washington fans.
 
9/22/2013 1:40:00 PM
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.
 
9/17/2012 4:06:00 PM
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.
 
7/26/2011 3:38:00 PM
Description: Redskins OLB/DE Brian Orakpo tweeted earlier today, "This year we're not going through all that Albert nonsense again." SOURCE: TWITTER
Insight: That could mean one of two things... either Haynesworth comes in, becomes a model citizen, works hard and earns his paycheck... OR... his career as a Redskin will cease to end as we know it.
 
12/19/2010 3:33:00 PM
Description: Redskins DE/LB Brian Orakpo left Sunday's Week 15 game against the Cowboys with a groin/hamstring injury.
Insight: Orakpo is questionable to return in this game and has been replaced by Chris Wilson.
 
10/31/2010 2:10:00 PM
Description: Redskins OLB Brian Orakpo limped off the field with a left ankle injury in the first half of Washington's Week 8 tilt with Detroit.
Insight: Orakpo was only out for one series, got a new tape job on the ankle, and was back on the field. Orakpo was walking around in a protective boot much of the week leading up to today's game.
 
10/31/2010 1:38:00 PM
Description: Redskins LB Brian Orakpo limped off the field in the first quarter against the Lions with an ankle injury.
Insight: Orakpo was wearing a walking boot on the same ankle earlier in the week, so he may have aggravated the injury.
