Orakpo, Griffin III Will Sit Season Finale


Despite his best efforts to return for the reported final game of his rookie contract, Washington Redskins linebacker Brian Orakpo will be sidelined this afternoon with a strained groin.

Given the health of both Kirk Cousins and Rex Grossman, quarterback Robert Griffin III will also be inactive, as planned, for the final game of the season. Cousins will get his third-straight start.

  • No. 10 Quarterback Robert Griffin III

  • No. 25 Cornerback Chase Minnifield
  • No. 60 Center J.D. Walton
  • No. 67 Guard Josh LeRibeus
  • No. 97 Linebacker Adrian Robinson
  • No. 98 Linebacker Brian Orakpo

No. 11 Aldrick Robinson is expected to start in place of Morgan at wide receiver.
