Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said Monday that linebacker Brian Orakpo suffered a torn right pectoral muscle and will require season. Per ESPN:

It's the third time Orakpo has torn a pectoral muscle in his career. He missed all but two games in 2012 with a torn left pectoral, which he had also torn in the '11 season finale.

"It's a major blow," Gruden said.

Orakpo suffered the injury in the second half of the Redskins' 19-17 win over Tennessee, leaving the game for good in the fourth quarter. It's the third time he's torn a pectoral muscle, though the first two were on the left side, with one of those tears costing him the final 14 regular season games in 2012.
Through seven games this season, Orakpo has only recorded half a sack.
