According to Mark Maske of The Washington Post, it looks like Redskins linebacker Brian Orakpo will likely be sidelined for this week’s game against the Bengals.
The Washington Redskins likely will be without linebacker Brian Orakpo for at least one game.
Reserve linebacker Rob Jackson said Monday that he spoke to Orakpo on Sunday evening and that it doesn’t appear that Orakpo will be able to play this week.
Jackson said he and fellow backup linebacker Chris Wilson likely will play bigger roles when the Redskins host the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.
Orakpo is certainly one of the Redskins’ best defensive player and not having him on the field this week will be a tough blow.
