News: Orakpo (pectoral) was placed on the season-ending IR on Tuesday, Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reports. Impact: Orakpo recently learned that he has once again suffered a torn pectoral muscle, so it's no surprise to see him officially ruled out for the remainder of the regular season. Trent Murphy will likely resume additional snaps at outside linebacker in his stead, while linebacker Everette Brown was re-signed by the team Tuesday to add depth.(RotoWire, )

News: Orakpo is reportedly done for the season due to a torn right pectoral muscle, reports. Impact: According to the Washington Post, left pectoral muscle issues have cost Orakpo time in the past, and his latest injury setback will evidently sideline him for the rest of the 2014 season. Trent Murphy finished Week 7's game in Orakpo's place and thus appears in line to see expanded duties for Washington at right outside linebacker going forward.(RotoWire, )

News: Orakpo will not return to Sunday's game against the Titans due to a shoulder injury. Impact: Orakpo suffered a stinger earlier in Sunday's game and also carried an ankle ailment into Washington's Week 7 contest. While Orakpo will not re-enter the action, it's unclear if his shoulder injury will limit him moving forward.(RotoWire, )

News: Redskins coach Jay Gruden says Orakpo is done for the season because of a torn right pectoral muscle. Impact: Gruden says Monday that Orakpo needs surgery. Orakpo, a three-time Pro Bowl selection, was hurt trying to make a tackle on a running play early in the fourth quarter of Washington's 19-17 victory over the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. Orakpo twice has torn the pectoral muscle near his left shoulder in the past. (STATS, 4:20pm)

News: Orakpo is slated to undergo an MRI on his pectoral muscle, ESPN reports. Impact: Orakpo entered Sunday's game with an ankle injury, but exited the contest due to a reported shoulder issue. However, in light of the most recent report, it appears Orakpo is actually dealing with a pectoral injury suffered Sunday. Furthermore, the concern is significant enough to warrant an MRI, casting another cloud over Orakpo's status. As a result, expect a diagnosis on the outside linebacker to surface shortly.(RotoWire, )

News: Orakpo (ankle) suffered a stinger during Sunday's game against the Titans and is considered questionable to return. Impact: Orakpo entered Sunday's contest carrying a slight ankle injury, but now has been sidelined with a stinger. Prior to exiting versus Tennessee, Orakpo did not record a tackle. If he's unable to return, Trent Murphy figures to enjoy an expanded role at weakside linebacker in the Redskins' 3-4 defensive scheme.(RotoWire, )

News: Orakpo (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Titans. Impact: Orakpo has just a half-sack this season, but he should have some opportunities to increase that number against a Tennessee offense that ranks near the bottom of the league with 17 sacks allowed this season.(RotoWire, )

News: Orakpo (ankle) is probable for Sunday's game against Tennessee. Impact: Orakpo's production has been miserable so far this year -- he has just a half sack to this point -- but his health is not an issue and his owners can utilize him as they would normally.(RotoWire, )

News: Orakpo (ankle) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, the Washington Post reports. Impact: Orakpo played last week so it's not surprising to see him in practice. He should be on the field this week.(RotoWire, )
