Orakpo and Carriker done for the year

By Mark Pierce

The Monday injury report was grim for the Redskins as the team lost two key defensive players to season-ending injury. Outside linebacker Brian Orakpo will require surgery to repair his torn left pectoral muscle, while teammate Adam Carriker will undergo the knife to repair a torn Quadriceps tendon. Both players were injured in Sunday’s matchup against St. Louis, and are expected to miss the remainder of the 2012 season.

Devastating news for the defense, however, the Redskins are deepest and strongest on the defensive front, so the replacements here, in year three of the Shanahan regime, are fairly reliable.

About ImproperRedskin

I grew up watching the Redskins with my dad. I feel I've always been a part of Redskins Nation. I'm so excited about the direction the team is taking now. I feel somewhat exiled in terms of the skins living in Boston, even though I know there are other fans here. That's pretty much why I started doing this, to touch base with other Redskins fans across the country. There's always something to talk about with the Redskins, isn't there? I want to hear your voice.
