After suffering a loss to the Saint Louis Rams yesterday, the Washington Redskins got a dose of bad news today. Head coach Mike Shanahan said that defensive end Adam Carriker and outside linebacker Brian Orakpo are both out for the season with injuries suffered Sunday.
According to Rich Campbell of the Washington Times, Carriker suffered a quadriceps tendon tear, and Orakpo tore a pectoral muscle in the loss to the Rams.
They knew initially the prognosis on Carriker wasn’t good, as Shanahan said yesterday “It doesn’t look good,” for the defensive end.
What did not look good yesterday, looks even worse today as it is now confirmed both will be out for the season.
The Washington Redskins will have to focus even more on their offense as the season continues if they want to win games.
