The Washington Redskins have signed linebacker Everette Brown and placed linebacker Brian Orakpo on injured reserve.

Brown was in training camp with the Redskins this year but was cut at the end of the preseason.

Brown has appeared in 38 NFL games with three starts with the Carolina Panthers, San Diego Chargers and Dallas Cowboys. He played in seven games with the Cowboys last season and had one sack.

Three-time Pro Bowl player Orakpo tore his right pectoral muscle in Sunday’s win over Tennessee.

The Redskins made the moves Tuesday after announcing Monday that Orakpo was out for the season.
