Redskins notes: Orakpo sits out what could have been his final game with team
Question of the Day
Another milestone for Garcon
Wide receiver Pierre Garcon caught six passes against the Giants. He became the third player in NFL history to record at least five receptions in all 16 games of a season since the adoption of the 16-game schedule in 1978, joining Jacksonville’s Jimmy Smith (2001) and Pittsburgh’s Antonio Brown (this season).
Offensive guard Kory Lichtensteiger said he sprained the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) in his left knee with 1:31 left in the fourth quarter and was replaced by Adam Gettis. Meanwhile, defensive end Jarvis Jenkins was tested for a concussion. Jenkins was adamant that he didn’t have a concussion, but said the referee made him leave the game to get checked after hearing teammates ask if he was okay following a second-quarter play.
Morgan sits again
Also inactive for the Redskins on Sunday was wide receiver Joshua Morgan, who also is set to become a free agent after the season and could have played his last game for his hometown team.
Morgan’s effort in recent games has been questioned by the coaching staff, and there was perhaps no better indication of his lack of motivation than on his 12-yard kickoff return in the fourth quarter of the game against the Cowboys, when he leisurely strolled out of bounds.
Fullback Darrel Young, who has been hampered by a strained hamstring for the last six weeks, played on Sunday. So, too, did outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan, who sustained an unspecified wrist injury last week.
