Redskins LB Brian Orakpo’s frustrating season ends with injury

Meanwhile, Helu, who was listed on the injury report with knee and toe ailments, was favoring his left leg for parts of the afternoon. He finished with just 5 yards on four carries, though he did turn a short pass into a 47-yard touchdown, limping all the way.

“He just never got back in the swing of things, and he was hampered throughout the game,” Shanahan said.

McIntosh inactive

Linebacker Rocky McIntosh’s role was reduced in the middle of the season. In the final game, he had none at all.

McIntosh was made inactive after picking up just four tackles in his past seven games. The 29-year-old impending free agent had started the first eight games but was replaced in the starting lineup by Perry Riley, considered the future at the position.

McIntosh signed a one-year deal with a $1.25 million base salary for this season.
