Washington Redskins linebacker Brian Orakpo and defensive end Adam Carriker are out for the season with injuries suffered during the Redskins 31-28 loss to the St.Louis Rams.
Orakpo suffered another tear of the pectoral muscle near his left shoulder. Orakpo had surgery on the same shoulder after suffering a similar injury in the final game of last season.
Carriker tore the quad tendon at the base of his right knee in the first quarter of Sunday’s game.
The loss of Orakpo is a big blow to the Redsksins. The two time Pro Bowler will now be replaced by either Rob Jackson or Chris Wilson.
