Brian Orakpo out for season with torn pectoral

Washington Redskins outside linebacker Brian Orakpo is out for the season with a torn pectoral.

Orakpo is playing this season under an $11.45 million franchise tender.

Orakpo is a free agent after this season, meaning this could have ended his career with the Redskins.

Orakpo has recorded 40 sacks since joining the Redskins as a first-round draft pick.
