Ashburn, VA (SportsNetwork.com) -
The Washington Redskins announced on Monday that linebacker Brian Orakpo will be lost for the remainder of the season with a torn pectoral muscle.
"He's gonna have surgery and he is out for the season. It's a blow. He's been playing very good against the run and disruptive in the passing game." said Washington head coach Jay Gruden.
Orakpo left Sunday's 19-17 win over the Tennessee Titans in the fourth quarter and did not return with a right pectoral injury. He underwent an MRI earlier in the day which confirmed the extent of the damage.
Strike three is looming for Harvin

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) -
Breakin' up is hard to do, at least according to Neil Sedaka.
For Pete Carroll and John Schneider, though, it wasn't difficult at all. The Seahawks' braintrust sent the disagreeable Percy Harvin to the desperate New York Jets on Friday in exchange for a conditional pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.
It most likely will be just a sixth-round selection but could move up to a fourth-rounder if Harvin actually starts acting like a professional in New York, a bigger long-shot than the 1-6 Jets turning things around and making a run toward the postseason.
That's a far cry from the first-, third- and seventh-round picks the Seahawks sent to Minnesota to "pry" the immensely talented Harvin from the Vikings back in March of 2013.
