News: Orakpo (finger) is listed as probable for Thursday's contest against the Giants.

News: Orakpo (finger), who will wear a hard cast on his left hand, is slated to play Thursday night against the Giants, the Washington Post reports. Impact: Tests on the finger on Orakpo's left hand that he dislocated Sunday revealed ligament damage, but no fractures, so it looks like he'll be able to play through the injury Thursday, while sporting a hard cast. In three games to date, Orakpo has notched 10 tackles and 0.5 sacks.(RotoWire, )

News: Orakpo (finger) was a limited participant in Tuesday's practice. Impact: With the Redskins facing a quick turnaround this week in playing the Giants on Thursday, Orakpo and several of his teammates were limited at Tuesday's session. It's tough to get a read if Orakpo's light involvement was more of a precautionary measure to preserve his body, but even if he plays Thursday, the finger issue probably isn't something that will go away quickly. There's a distinct possibility that he's dealing with a dislocated finger, which could compromise his ability to get around offensive tackles on the pass rush.(RotoWire, )

Impact: Orakpo has so far had a minimal impact on defense, but in his previous five campaigns, he's notched at least 8.5 sacks on four occasions. As a result, quarterback takedowns should come with time.(RotoWire, )
