The Washington Redskins will be without outside linebacker Brian Orakpo for the rest of the season after coach Jay Gruden confirmed that the pass-rusher will need surgery to repair a torn right pectoral muscle sustained against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.

Orakpo has suffered two torn pectoral muscles in the past, but both were on the left side. Making over $11 million under the franchise tag, Orakpo has a half-sack this season and 24 total tackles. WIth his lack of production and injury woes, his Redskins career is likely over after six seasons.
