Brian Orakpo has Torn Pectoral Muscle, Out for the Season

Concern Grows on Brian Orakpo’s Pectoral Muscle Injury, MRI set for Monday

There is growing concern that linebacker Brian Orakpo suffered a partially torn right pectoral muscle and might need surgery. Orakpo will undergo an MRI on Monday to see if the fears are legitimate.

It’s believed that Orakpo was injured on the Titans second offensive play of the fourth quarter as he reached to tackle running back Bishop Sankey.

Orakpo hurt his arm, re-entered the game and then left again.

He has suffered two torn pectoral muscles in the past, but both on the left side. Orakpo has not had the season he or the Redskins hoped for, with only a half-sack, in a year when he’s playing for a new contract.

Orakpo did not return to the game. He did not speak to reporters afterward, either.

The Redskins will have to brace themselves and hope for the best…while expecting the worst.
